La Vie 

Begins Its 

40th Year 

40th Year — No. 1 

Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Pennsylvania 

Thursday, September 19, 1963 

Freshmen trudge with bag and baggage up endless steps to their destinations in 
Vickroy as college days begin. 

Orientation Program 
Greets Frosh At LVC 

„ Formal orientation for the 224 freshmen and new students that en- 
tered Lebanon Valley College on Sunday afternoon, September 15, began 
on Monday morning with an opening convocation. 

The 1963 orientation program is an enlargement of the orientation 
plan adopted last year at LVC. Last year all first year students were re- 
quired to read one book before coming on campus and discussion was 
centered on this book during freshman orientation week. This year, by 
instituting spring and summer orientation periods for purposes of testing, 
college administrators have been able to expand the reading program to 
include two books. Students were given their reading assignments fol- 
lowing these testing sessions. 

The discussion this year centered 
around two books: Mark Van Doren's 
"Liberal Education" and Loren Eiseley's 
"The Immense Journey." Each student 
participated in two discussion periods for 
each book. 

"What should be the role of the teach- 
er in the ideal educational system? What 
should be the relationship between teacher 
and student? What qualities should the 
ideal teacher have?" These questions are 
samples of the ones presented in the dis- 
cussion groups. 

Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean of the col- 
lege, said that the program "represents 
an attempt to make the orientation acti- 
vities intellectually more significant than 
they have been in the past. The incom- 
ing student needs a better introduction to 
college life than the usual testing program 
and social activities. One way to achieve 
this is to require that he read and discuss 
thought-provoking books under the guid- 
ance of those who are to be his instruc- 

The ten professors who directed the 
discussions were Dr. Struble, Dr. Faber, 
Mr. Keller, Dr. Lockwood, Dr. Griswold, 
Dr. Leamon, Dr. Tom, Dr. Richards, Dr. 
Rhodes and Rev. Souders. 

Social Events 

The Student Christian Association was 
responsible for the social events of the 
orientation week. 

A vesper service was held on Sunday 
night prior to the reception held in the 
College Church by the Annville Council 
of Churches. The opening convocation

President Miller Makes 
Academic Appointments 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of 
Lebanon Valley College, has announced 
the following appointments for the 1963- 
64 academic year. 

Dr. Francis Wilson, chairman of the 
department of biology, will serve as direc- 
tor of the division of science, his term to 
expire in 1966. William McHenry, di- 
rector of athletics, will become head of 
the division of physical education and 
athletics with a term expiring in 1966. 
Both men will become members of the 
academic affairs committee by virtue of 
these appointments. 

The departments of the college are 
grouped into five divisions: science, hu- 
manities, social science, teacher educa- 
tion and physical education. The direc- 
tors of these divisions are appointed to 
two successive terms as a director. 

Appointments have also been made to 
fill the non-academic positions held by 
Mr. Fehr, who is on sabbatical leave. For 
the year of Fehr's absence, Dr. Thurmond 
will be acting chairman of the public re- 
lations committee of the faculty; Dr. Lea- 
mon will be acting chairman of the stu- 
dent conduct committee; Dr. Shay will be 
faculty parliamentarian and Mr. Keller 
will act as faculty advisor on constitutions 
for student organizations. 

The Faculty-Student Council of Leba- 
non Valley College will hold a "Get Ac- 
quainted Dance" this Saturday in the 
main gym of the Lynch Memorial Gym- 
nasium. All students are invited. The 
music will be under the direction of Ken 

The various organizations on campus 
will have the privilege of using displays 
in order to give the incoming freshmen 
an idea of the variety and versatility of 
our campus organizations. 

Refreshments will be provided. There 
will be no admission charge. 

Valley Faculty Members 

Begin Sabbatical Leaves 

Two members of the Lebanon Valley 
College faculty have been granted sab- 
batical leaves during the 1963-64 aca- 
demic year. 

Alex J. Fehr, assistant professor of 
political science, has received a full year's 
leave to continue his studies toward the 
doctor of social science degree at the 
Maxwell School of Citizenship and Pub- 
lic Affairs, Syracuse University. 

William H. Fairlamb, associate pro- 
fessor of piano and music history, will 
be on leave during the first semester of 
the academic year. He will use this period 
for additional study and in musical com- 

During the absence of Mr. Fehr, his 
classes will be conducted by Jerome J. 
Martorana. Mr. Fairlamb's piano pupils 
will be taught by Mrs. Nevelyn Knisley, 
a former member of the LVC faculty. 

Sabbatical leaves are granted by Leba- 
non Valley College to give faculty mem- 
bers an opportunity to engage in activi- 
ties that will improve them as teachers. 
Although all applicants for sabbatical 
leaves are carefully screened, faculty 
members are not narrowly restricted as 
to the type of program they may pursue. 

Dr. Napier To Begin 
1963 Lecture Series 

Dr. B. Davie Napier, Holmes Professor of Old Testament Criticism 
and Interpretation at Yale University Divinity School, will present the 
Balmer Showers Lectures this year at Lebanon Valley College. The lec- 
tures will be held October 7 and 8. 

Tom Receives Doctorate 
From Chicago University 

C. F. Joseph Tom, assistant professor 
of ecnomics, received his Ph.D. degree 
in Economics on June 8 from the Univer- 
sity of Chicago. The topic of his dis- 
sertation was: Monetary Problems of an 
Entrepot: The Hong Kong Experience. In 
his thesis, Dr. Tom attempted to make 
three major points. First, why should 
Hong Kong, as an entrepot, choose one 
kind of monetary standard instead of an- 
other, i.e., silver instead of gold? The 
first part of the thesis attempted to pro- 
vide both a theoretical and empirical an- 
swer to this question. 

The second point related to the theo- 
retical analysis on international prices. As 
a rule, when a country maintains a stable 
exchange rate with her trading partners, 
the price movements in her trading part- 
ners would provide an ideal empirical 
verification of the theory of international 

The final points dealt with the high 
cost of use of money in Hong Kong. This 
is especially interesting because (1) the use 
of money is usually taken for granted as 
if there is no cost involved and (2) it is 
related to a larger and current problem 
of the relationship between the costs of 
supplying money and economic growth in 
the various British colonies. 

In short, the main purpose of this study 
was to examine, in the light of the Hong 
Kong experience, the working of some 
monetary forces in an entrepot economy. 

Seniors Return Early 
For Student Teaching 

Thirteen Lebanon Valley College seniors reported to campus early 
this year to initiate the college's new program for elementary student 
teaching in cooperation with area school districts. 

Under the new system, the students reported for on-the-job training 
by attending the opening teachers' meeting in the school district to which 
they had been assigned to teach. Following the first session they began 
a full load of observation and teaching in the classrooms. 

They will continue to teach through 
the month of January at which time 
they will return to the campus and a 
full-time schedule of classes during their 
last college semester. 

In conjunction with their teaching, the 
students will meet three hours each week 
in an elementary education seminar on 
the campus. In the seminar they will 
thoroughly study pertinent topics in this 
field of education. 

Each student will also do individual 
study on a current topic in education, 
selected by himself and approved by Dr. 
Cloyd Ebersole, professor of elementary 
education, and Mrs. June Herr, assistant 
professor of elementary education. Dr. 
Ebersole and Mrs. Herr are the directors 
of the new elementary student teaching 

Teaching in the Annville-Cleona School 
District are Miss Sandra Hock, Miss 
Elizabeth Vastine and Miss Sandra 

In the Cornwall-Lebanon Sub-Jointure 
are Miss Lois Ensminger, Miss Myrl 
Geist and Miss Susan Schreiber. 

In the Derry Township School District 
are Miss Linda Bell and Miss Julie 

In the Lebanon City Schools are Miss

Dr. B. Davie Napier 

Dr. Napier is the son of missionary 
parents and was educated in Nanking, 
Kobe, Shanghai and Birmingham, Eng- 
land. He is an ordained minister of the 
Church of Christ. He holds an A. B. de- 
gree from Howard College and the B. D. 
and Ph. D. from Yale University. Dr. 
Napier has also studied at the University 
of Heidelberg. Prior to becoming a 
member of the faculty at Yale, he taught 
at Judson College and served as Minister 
of the University Church and Chaplain 
and chairman of the department of reli- 
gion at Alfred University and as Univer- 
sity Chaplain and chairman of the de- 
partment of religion at the University of 

Dr. Napier has done extensive research 
in the areas of Old Testament interpre- 
tation and Biblical theology, the relation- 
ship between the Old and New Testa- 
ments and the use of the Bible in con- 
temporary literature and drama. 

The overall topic of Dr. Napier's lec- 
tures is: Prophetic Past and Present The 
individual lectures are: "Prophetism in 
Perspective" on October 7 at 8 p.m. in 
Engle Hall, "Prophetism and Reality" on 
October 8 at 11 a.m. in the College 
Church and "Prophetism and Meaningless- 
ness" on October 8 at 2:30 p.m. in the 
College Church. 

The Blamer Showers Lectures were 
established in 1962 by Dr. J. Balmer 
Showers, Bishop Emeritus of the Evan- 
gelical United Brethren Church. Their 
purpose is to bring to Lebanon Valley 
College lecturers of distinguished scholar- 
ship and of recognized leadership in the 
area of the subject matter of the lectures. 

Julie Johnston, Eileen Sabaka and Linda Bell sit amidst the mounds of material 
they must prepare for el. ed. student teaching. 


An Introduction 

College — a dream eagerly awaited or an undefined fear. College 
will be for you, freshmen, what you want it to be and what you do to 
make it that way. 

Life on a college campus will be vastly different from that to which 
you are accustomed. 

Socially, you will find college to be new and exciting. New friends 
and new interests will add to your already growing concern for the future. 
Responsibility and dependability will be required of you. As a college 
student you will be asked to fill certain positions and to accept certain 
roles. You will be pushed into the position of a leader and your opinions 
will be consulted. You will travel, with ever increasing speed, into the 
world of decisions and leadership. 

Academically, you are better prepared than many of your predecessor 
generations. You, as a child of the atomic age, are eager to discover and 
quick to accept the challenge. As a student you will be plagued with in- 
tellectual problems. You will be living in an atmosphere that is permeated 
with new ideas and new approaches to truth. You will be taught to be 
critical and objective in your thinking. You will, perhaps, change or alter 
your opinions and ideas — and intellectually, you will grow. 

You will not find all the answers in your brief years on this college 
campus. You may, in fact, find only more questions. But, you will find 
the paths that could lead to answers if you work and seek for them. 

Four brief years of college. Four years filled with alteration and 
development. Four brief years of a sense of perception in a lifetime of 

Yes, these are, perhaps, the most vital years in your life. All periods 
and phases of life are important. However, college years are particularly im- 
portant for they are filled with significant happenings, with opportunities 
and with change. Your first year can, and probably will, bring about 
such great changes that you may have difficulty in remembering the way 
you used to be. There is certainly a vast difference between the starry- 
eyed freshman and the glassy-eyed alumnus. 

A libral arts college, such as Lebanon Valley, is concerned with the 
development of the maximum capacities of an individual. With this 
objective, it is hoped that each new student will have an intellectual in- 
quisitiveness and begin seeking that illusive something called wisdom. 
The acquisition and accumulation of facts are important; but, they are 
not an end in themselves. They merely help to pave the way for the 
end product of a college education which should be wisdom and truth. 
These should be the goals of each freshman, each transfer student and 
each upperclassman as well as members of the faculty and administration. 
This is what Lebanon Valley College should introduce to you as a fresh- 

Life would be extremely void and dull without at least a brief in- 
sight into truth and wisdom. (JKR) 

The Search 

This generation of college students has been described as one seek- 
ing a religious faith which will capture both the heart and the mind; a gen- 
eration willing to listen to a new philosophy, but skeptical and not easily 

We students are self-centered. We do not have time for world issues 
except those which touch us directly, such as race relations. Since we feel 
that there is little we can do to change this incorrigible world, we ignore 
its problems. Yet we cannot overlook a neighbor in need — he occupies 
the summers of students who can afford to give up a paying job for a 
redevelopment project. We concern ourselves with questions of our per- 
sonal identity rather than with the future of the world and how we could 
change it. Perhaps the world is moving so fast that all we dare do is at- 
tempt to keep pace with it. We are afraid that if we try to modify its 
rocketing course we will only drop out of formation and get left behind. 

The loss of our childhood faith stems from the lack of security that 
is fostered when we leave the protective shield constructed around us by 
our parents and hometown folks and enter college. Here is where we 
become aware of "the truth about the world" and how it has deceived us 
in our innocence. We discover that the government is secretly and hypo- 
critically aiding subversive elements in Cuba and that our historical and 
present-day heroes are not as perfect as we imagined. 

Our religious life suffers when we realize that much of the Holy Bible 
is allegory rather than literal truth, because the faith of our fathers is mis- 
takenly discarded along with the outmoded religious doctrines. Conse- 
quently, our moral teachings, having lost their basis, lack relevancy. God 
becomes irrelevant in the fast pace of this world. 

Yet we yearn for a faith. However, we do not know what to believe 
in anymore. Having been deceived, we are stripped of all our symbols of 
security and are afraid to trust again. We wait, though, because we do 
not want to deny. We seek to affirm but lack the object. 

When our faith returns in a crisis we sigh with relief that it was al- 
ways there, rooted deep in our being. We realize later, however, that we 
are seeking more than emergency support, because the wonderful feeling 
soon disappears. We seek a meaning for our everyday living beyond that 
of earthly satisfactions. We seek God. 

Freshmen, will you help us in our search? If you feel the same way 
let the knowledge that you are not alone encourage you. If you have a 
strong faith which you can retain, will you help us to rediscover ours under 
this new light of learning? Until then we wait. (NLB) 

New signs announce college campus. 

College Makes Repairs 
During Summer Months 

Summer activities at Lebanon Valley 
College usually include a number of im- 
provements around the campus. This 
past summer was particularly a busy one. 

The changes and improvements in- 
clude the following. Keister Hall was 
completely repainted, new furniture was 
purchased for the second floor and screens 
were added to all windows. Laughlin Hall 
and North College received new closets. 
The Maintenance Building is in the pro- 
cess of being painted and a new cornice 
was added. 

A partition was put in the Knight's 
house, the inside of the gym was painted, 
the south side of the Snack Bar was re- 
decorated and is now a faculty lounge, 
the duplicating room was moved from 
South Hall to the basement of the Ad- 
ministration Building, new windows were 
put in the second floor of Kreider Hall. 
Mrs. Millard's office was repainted, the 
baths in Vickroy Hall were replastered 
and the bleachers were repainted on the 
athletic field. 

Jfrteri Vo Jfc Vie 

La Vie welcomes student opinion in 
the form of letters to the editor. Stu- 
dents are encouraged to comment, criti- 
cally or approvingly, on campus situa- 

In order to protect the authors of these 
letters as well as to protect La Vie itself 
as a paper of discretion, letters to the 
editor must meet the following require- 

1. All letters must be signed by the 
writer, although the author's name will 
be withheld on request and maintained 
in absolute confidence by the editor. 

2. Letters must be in good taste and 
free of vulgarity or abusive language. 

3. Letters may not degrade any racial 
or religious group nor defame an in-

Here We Go Again 

The Staff of La Vie Collegienne wel- 
comes everyone at the beginning of this 
1963-64 academic year. We greet re- 
turning students, freshmen and new 
faculty members alike, and we place 
ourselves at your service as a medium of 
campus communication. 

LVC students and faculty are the sub- 
stance of our newspaper. We seek this 
year, as in the past, to give fair and ac- 
curate coverage to all departments, or- 
ganizations and individuals as they en- 
gage in their various activities. We en- 
courage all Valleyites to contribute news, 
features and ideas to La Vie; a diversity 
of material makes the paper more in- 
teresting to a greater variety of students. 

We invite the cooperation of every- 
one as we publish a newspaper which, we 
hope, will reflect campus talent and up- 
hold high standards of college journalism. 
This is the goal for which the editors and 
the staff have resolved to work to the 
best of their ability during the coming 

College Displays Works 
By Miss Gladys Fencil 

Ten art exhibits will be displayed to the 
public in Carnegie Lounge during the 
1963-64 academic year. 

The first exhibition, which is currently 
showing and will remain open until Sep- 
tember 28, consists of the oil paintings 
of Miss Gladys Fencil, administrative 
assistant to the Dean of the College. 

For a period of twelve years, Miss 
Fencil has taught classes in early decora- 
tion; and her oil paintings reflect the in- 
fluence of the early decoration techniques 
seen frequently in this area.

La Vie Inquires 

Freshmen Evaluate 
Orientation Program 

by Carol Mickey 

Since the initiation of the summer reading program last year with 
the incoming Centennial Class, there has been discussion among under- 
classmen concerning the merits of this program and the related faculty-led 
discussion groups. La Vie Inquires attempts to present the views of 
members of the Class of 1967 concerning this program. 

Each incoming student was required to read Loren Eiseley's "The 
Immense Journey" and "Liberal Education" by Mark Van Doren. In 
addition, two discussion periods were held concerning each book, with 
required attendance for all students. 

La Vie Inquires does not pretend that 
the views expressed here are a general 
concensus of student opinion. Rather, 
this is an attempt to present the feelings 
of students who were in the midst of 
freshman orientation. Therefore, La Vie 
Inquires, "What is your evaluation of the 
freshman reading program and discussion 

Bill Essick: "I thought the program 
was beneficial in so far as it acquainted 
the student with the level of reading to 
be required of him in his curriculum, and 
in that one of the books (Liberal Educa- 
tion) was an appropriate kick-off point 
for a Liberal Arts education. Perhaps it 
was thought that if the books were not 
introduced in this way that they would 
not be read at all, and in the case of 
Van Doren's book this is probably true. 
The program was most certainly not de- 

Connie Smith: "I still have not found 
what the real purpose is for reading the 
books that they require us to read. 

"Our leader, Mr. Keller, is doing a 
fine job in leading our group. He doesn't 
entirely direct the discussions to the 
books. He is very informed on all topics 
which makes the discussions much more 

Patti Todd: "I believe that the discus- 
sion groups are helpful in some ways but 
not in others. In most cases student 

participation in the discussion was very 
limited and most of the talking was done 
by the professor. A thorough reading of 
the books was not necessary, for usually 
the professors ended up answering their 
own questions. 

"The discussion periods however were 
helpful in clearing up some of the ques- 
tions which arose while reading." 

Richard Schott: "I think the solutions 
were most interesting and thought provok- 
ing. The discussion groups were extreme- 
ly helpful in that they allowed a sharing 
of ideas with other students." 

Dennis Noll: "In my opinion the pro- 
gram is very worthwhile. It produces two 
effects. First of all, it helps introduce 
the students to each other. Secondly, it 
loosens the mind after a summer of com- 
parative inactivity." 

Carol Isenberg: "The freshman reading 
program served a two fold purpose in the 
lives of new students. It introduced 
them to periods of controversial discus- 
sion on subjects which require a certain 
amount of deep thinking; it enabled the 
freshmen to become better acquainted 
with the students of his group. 

"In my opinion the discussions were 
interesting, informative and thought pro- 
voking; the sessions were a welcome 
change from the routine of information 
periods and other necessary formalities."

ment of music sponsored "The Joe Allard 
Workshop" and the third annual Instru- 
mental Techniques Workshop this sum- 

Mr. Allard has been a prominent New 
York teacher of woodwind instruments for 
more than twenty years. He has studied 
with various well known teachers and 
has performed in numerous orchestras.

Two Convocations Open 
College Academic Year 

The two convocations held this week 
in Engle Hall and the College Church, 
respectively, marked the opening of the 
1963-64 academic year at Lebanon Valley 

The Freshman Convocation was held 
Monday morning. Dr. Hagen Staack, 
professor of religion and chairman of 
the department of religion at Muhlenberg 
College, was the main speaker. 

Dr. Staack is a native of Germany and 
was educated at Rostock University, the 
Berlin Theological Seminary and the Uni- 
versity of Hamburg. In 1949 Dr. Staack 
came to the United States, and in 1950 he 
became pastor of the bi-lingual St. Peter's 
Lutheran Church in Allentown. 

Appearing on the program with Dr. 
Staack were Dr. Bemesderfer, chaplain, 
and Dr. Ehrhart, dean of the college. 

On Thursday morning the opening 
College Convocation was held. Rev. 
Bemesderfer presided. Dean Ehrhart ex- 
tended words of welcome and Dr. Frederic 
K. Miller, president of the college, de- 
livered the address.

Mayhoffer with the basketball duties. 

Leamon has been a member of the 
LVC faculty since 1961 as an assistant 
professor of history. He participated in 
both cross country and track during his 
high school and college career. 

Gamber, a graduate of LVC, was 
athletic trainer at Valley from 1950-52. 
Since that time he has been faculty man-

As New Gym Instructor 

Urban Bowman has been appointed to 
the position of instructor in physical edu- 
cation at Lebanon Valley College. Bow- 
man, a native of Westminster, Maryland, 
will fill the vacancy created by the resig- 
nation of George Storck. Storck resigned

land, and at the University of Dayton. 

Chemistry Students Do 
Summer Study At LVC 

Five students and two recent graduates 
participated in a ten-week Summer Re- 
search Program in the department of 
chemistry. The program was sponsored 
jointly by an undergraduate research par- 
ticipation grant from the National Science 
Foundation and Lebanon Valley College. 

Dr. Robert Griswold, assistant profes- 
sor of chemistry, was the director in 
charge. Dr. John Haugh, assistant pro- 
fessor of chemistry, was the associate di- 

The students participating in the pro- 
gram were Larry Funck, Joel Lantz, Wil- 
liam Scovell, Kenneth Whisler, Jr. and 
Patricia Ziegler. 

1963 graduates participating included 
Ralph Kreiser and David Rabenold. 

The purposes of the program were to 
introduce undergraduate students to origi- 
nal research and to motivate students to 
go on to graduate school. 

The participants were required to de- 
sign and carry out their own experiments 
and to interpret their own results of a 
research problem of interest to both the 
student and a member of the directing 
staff. Projects this summer included 
"Rates of Chemical Reaction" by Lantz 
and Ziegler, "Electroanalytical Chemistry" 
by Scovell, "Measurement of the Extent 
of Reaction-Formation Constant" by 
Funck and Whisler, "Reaction of Certain 
Organic Compounds with Oxygen" by 
Kreiser and "Thermal Decomposition of 
Certain Organic Compounds" by Rabe-

on September 3. 

The lettermen returned led by co-captains Wes MacMillan and Glenn 
Stech. Other lettermen include juniors Bill DiGiacomo, center; Bruce 
English, guard; and Terry Herr, end. Sophomores include Al Bullard, 
tackle; George Hohenshelt, guard; Jake Kimmel, fullback; Al Padley, 
halfback; and John Vaszily, quarterback.

Varsity Hockey Players 
Prepare For '63 Season 

Fifteen upperclassmen are expected to 
participate in the 1963 women's field 
hockey varsity program. Eight of the 
group have had previous experience on 
Lebanon Valley College's varsity team: 
Sandra Beltz, Sally Breidenthal, Elma 
Lowrie, Joanne Mainiero, Marcia Miller, 
Leah Rudnicki, Ruth Ann Smith and 
Elizabeth Vastine. Other upperclassmen 
with junior varsity or no college experi- 
ence are: Karen Caldwell, Jeanne Irwin, 
Carol Mickey, Linda Myers, Quinnetta 
Reider, Anne Sargent and Barbara 

The 1963 schedule includes one scrim- 
mage, three home games and three away 
games. Arrangements have also been 
made with Moravian and Dickinson to 
play the hockey games in the morning 
and to attend the men's football games 
in the afternoon. A similar plan calls 
for LVC women to remain in Allen- 
town for the LVC-Muhlenberg football

Valley College is dependent upon how 
well and how fast an untried group of 
sophomores and freshmen can come 
along. Gone from last year's squad are 
14 lettermen including five regular run- 
ning backs. The line will suffer from 
the loss of All-Conference tackle, Vance 
Stouffer, and co-captain, John Yajko, 
center. The biggest problem is to find 
regulars to fill the guard and end posts. 

WAA Plans Hike, Picnic 
For Incoming Students 

The first meeting of the Women's 
Athletic Association will be held on 
October 10 at 5 p.m. at the home of 
Dean Carmean. This meeting will be in 
the form of a hike and picnic. All in- 
coming women students (freshmen and 
transfers) and all WAA members are in- 
vited to attend. Plans for the coming 
year will be discussed during the business 
meeting. In case of rain the picnic will 
be held in the gym. 

WAA also urges all interested women 
to sign up in gym class or on the sheets

Terry Herr, leading scorer, and Wes 
MacMillan, co-captain of the 1963 foot- 
ball team, pause for LA VIE camera. 

On the brighter side is the return of 
MacMillan in the backfield and Stech at 
tackle. Both boys will give much experi- 
ence to a squad that numbers only a 
total of eight juniors and seniors. Mac- 
Millan has been an outstanding quarter- 
back for the past three seasons. How- 
ever, he may find himself running some 
at halfback as the squad has both 
strength and depth at quarterback. 

MacMillan, receiver of Honorable 
Mention listing on both the All-State and 
All-MAC Southern Division teams, led 
the Dutchmen in rushing with 281 yards 
and a 3.8 average. He also led the team 
in total offense, punting, punt returns, 
kickoff returns and passing. 

Last year's Southern Division scoring 
champion, Terry Herr, will again present 
a real threat as a dangerous receiver. 

Herr, named to the third All-State and 
first team All-MAC Southern Division, 
was the leading scorer in the MAC a 
year ago. He led the Blue and White in 
pass receiving with 14 catches for 336 
yards and seven touchdowns. He is also 
a demon on defense. 

Both MacMillan and Herr are top can- 
didates for the 1963 All-State Team. 

To date, the best looking sophomores 
are Al Padley, Vaszily and Bullard. 

A difficult season lies ahead. However, 
the Valley team will be attempting to im- 
prove their 5-3 record of last season and 
to regain the number one spot in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference, Southern 
Division, that they held in 1961. 

Tanno, Vastine Expect 
Good Cheering Season 

Judy Tanno and Elizabeth Vastine 
were elected co-captains of the Lebanon 
Valley College cheerleading squad. Other 
cheerleaders include Jill Barckley and 
Marcia Miller. Two additional members 
will be selected from the incoming fresh- 
man class.

Lebanon Valley College Societies have 
been formulating plans during the past 
summer for a more complete and varied 
social life for Valleyites during the 1963- 
64 season. Activities will begin early 
this year with picnics, dances, sales and 
fairs. A look around campus shows 
these events in the not-too-distant future. 

Delta Lambda Sigma and their brother 
organization, Kappa Lambda Sigma, will 
hold their annual K-D Kickoff Dance on 
September 27 from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. in

ball season dances. 

Kappa Lambda Nu has announced 
plans for a rummage sale to be held 
early in the fall. An open house will be 
held September 28 at 8 a.m. in the Clio 
Room. Clio will again be selling door 
knob covers this year. These may be ob 
tained from any Clio member. 

Clio, along with their brother organi- 
zation, Phi Lambda Sigma, will sponsor 
an informal dance on October 4. 

The Knights of the Valley will hold

Mezoff's Interest Is With The Small College 

lAJitlt ZJhe faculty, 

by Gail Rice 

A new member joins the administration this year in the capacity of 
Assistant to the President. Mr. Earl Robert Mezoff comes to LV from 
Penn State where he has been working for his doctorate for the past two 

Along with his wife and two daughters, aged 7 and 12, Mr. Mezoff 
lives in Palmyra, Pa. His wife will be taking college courses this year 
toward a degree in history. 

Sophomores Jill Codington and Pat Jones discover unhappily that their room 
has not grown during the summer. 

Mr. Mezoff attended Thiel College, a 
small church-related college similar to 
Lebanon Valley, where he received his 
B. S. degree in English. He then went 
to Michigan State where he obtained his 
master degree in psychology. 

After working for some time in General 
Motors Personnel Department, he re- 
turned to Thiel as a member of the ad- 
ministration. During his several years 
there his jobs were many and varied. 
Among the tasks which occupied his time 
were work in admissions, placement, 
alumni and public relations, in addition to 
working with the college choir. 

Officially titled assistant to the presi- 
dent, Mr. Mezoff will undertake a three- 
fold program. His first duty is to give 
general assistance to President Miller and 
to assume the responsibilities assigned to 
him by the president. 

His second duty will be that of co- 
ordinating college relations in an attempt 

to bring about closer relations among the 
varied associations and offices of the col- 

Last of his major duties is to develop 
and stimulate interest in Lebanon Valley 
on the part of foundations and scholarship 
organizations in an attempt to obtain gifts 
and grants to LV. 

Work alone does not occupy all of Mr. 
Mezoff's time. Good music, woodworking, 
travel and church work are among his 
outside interests. 

Very happy with his association with 
LVC, Mr. Mezoff gives as his primary 
reason for this liking the fact that LVC 
is small and church-related. Both he and 
his wife have been associated with schools 
of this type for many years and feel that 
many more colleges such as LVC are 

To Mr. Mezoff one of his first goals 
is to meet as many of the students as 
possible, for, as he says, "Without stu- 
dents there could be no college." 

Douglas A. Stauffer, a graduate of 
Bloomsburg State College, has been ap- 
pointed instructor in English. Mr. Stauf- 
fer is a candidate for the M. S. in Ed. 
degree from Temple University under the 
Graduate Education Program for Teach- 
ers. He has had six years of teaching 
experience in the public schools. 

Dr. Hilda M. Damus has been ap- 
pointed assistant professor of German at 
LVC. A native of Germany, Dr. Damus 
holds the Ph.D. degree in German and 
musicology from the University of Berlin. 
She has also earned the equivalent of a 
master's degree from the University of 
Berlin and Jena and has had two years 
of a teacher training course in Berlin. 
Her teaching experience includes one 
year as a Dozentin at the University of 
Berlin, 11 years at various secondary 
schools in Berlin, 3 years as an exchange 
professor at Texas Lutheran College and 
one year as an exchange professor in 
Buenos Aires, Argentina. For the past 
six years she has taught at the Lutheran 
High School West, Detroit, Michigan. 
She spent the summer in Germany, her 
annual custom, in order that she might 
maintain firsthand contact with the Ger- 
man language and culture. 

Mrs. Mary B. Lewin has been appoint- 
ed instructor in mathematics. Mrs. Lewin 
holds the B. S. in Education degree from 
Temple University under the Experi- 
mental Program in Teacher Education. 
She also attended a National Science 
Foundation Summer Institute at Clark 
University in 1960. Mrs. Lewin has 
taught in various public school systems 
in the surrounding area. 

John Roller Morris, II, a graduate of 
Lebanon Valley College, has been named 
assistant professor of physics. Mr. Mor- 
ris received the M. S. degree in phvsics 
from the University of New Hampshire. 
He was a National Science Foundation 
Fellow at the University of New Hamp- 
shire and was also a Teaching Fellow in 
chemistry at the University. Since 1962 
he has been an instructor in physics at 
the University of New Hampshire. 

Michael E. Cerveris has been named 
instructor in piano. Mr. Cerveris holds 
the B. S. degree with a piano major from 
the Julliard School of Mus ; c and an 
M. A. degree in musicology from Catho- 
lic University of America. He has re- 
ceived several prizes for concert work 
from the Pittsburgh Concert Society and 
scholarships from Julliard and the Phila- 
delphia Conservatory of Music. Since 
1959 he has been piano soloist with the 
United States Navy Band and a private 
piano teacher. 

Jerome J. Martorana has been named 
instructor in political science to replace 
Mr. Fehr, who is on sabbatical leave 
from LVC this year. Mr. Martorana is a 
graduate of Albright College and received 
his M. A. degree from the University of 
Pennsylvania, where he majored in in- 
ternational relations. Mr. Martorana 
has taught in the Muhlenberg Township 
High School. 

College Fund Exceeds 
Goal Fixed By Trustees 

Lebanon Valley College has just com- 
pleted its thirteenth successful Lebanon 
Valley College Fund year by raising 
$140,073, $5,073 above the goal set last 
fall by the Board of Trustees for this 
year's campaign. Of this amount $45,419 
was contributed by alumni, $40,218 by 
business and foundations, $38,203 by 
Evangelical United Brethren Churches of 
the Pennsylvania and East Pennsylvania 
Conferences, and $16,233 by parents of 
students and other friends of the college. 

This year's fund was directed by E. D.

This year we have four new foreign 
students with us. One of them is Khalid 
Theneyah, an ardent soccer player from 
Saudi Arabia. This is his fifth year in this 
country; the previous four years were 
spent attending high school in Princeton, 
New Jersey. 

Khalid Theneyah Enjoys 
Movie Photography 

Khalid is taking the liberal arts pro- 
gram, but hopes to be able to go into the 
field of architecture elsewhere. 

His reasons for coming to this country 
were to get to know more people and to 
acquire a good education. He chose 
Lebanon Valley because he saw it as a 
small friendly school where he would be 
able to get more individual help. Khalid 
has traveled rather extensively and ranks 

California and New York City among his 
favorites. These two places would con- 
veniently lend themselves to his hobby of 
movie photography. Khalid spends his 
summers in Saudi Arabia and when he 
completes his education he will be re- 
quired to spend two years working for his 
country. This is required of all who study 
outside the country. 

Mike Kamuyu Plans To Teach 

Another student attending the Valley 
this year is Mike Kamuyu, a student from 
Kenya. He arrived in this country 
August 11, 1963, after what he described 
as a very enjoyable trip. He lives in the 
village of Gishunguri in the highland re- 
gion. Mike completed his education in 
his home country and began secondary 
teaching in 1962. When he was given 

Mike Kamuyu and Khalid Theneyah, two of the four new foreign students on 
the LVC campus, pose for LA VIE'S camera outside the library. 

the opportunity to study in the United 
States he decided that this was what he 
wanted. He had been studying on his 
own, but found this to be very difficult. 
He is majoring in biology and plans to 
teach it after returning to Kenya. He finds 
our school systems and methods of teach- 
ing somewhat different. 

Mike's only major complaint has been 
his trouble with our food. His first 
several weeks here he had some very un- 
happy meals. Our method of seasoning 
and our use of frozen and canned foods 
were a shock at first but he thinks he's 
beginning to adjust.

recently joined the college family will be

5 Of 

i of 
. D. 

Members of SCA's Program Committee, Bill Newcomer, Miss Sue Wolfe and 
Miss Loretta Schlegel, discuss future programs for the fall semester. The series of 
"Christian Ethics and National Security in an Atomic Age" will get under way next 
Wednesday evening. 

SCA Plan Programs 
For Semester Series 

"Christian Ethics And National Security In An Atomic Age" will be 
the theme of SCA's main topic series for the first semester of the 1963- 
64 academic year. The theme is designed to better enable students to 
assume their world role as Christians. The series will begin on October 16 
with the topic of world brotherhood and peace. The Reverend Glenn E. 
Smiley will be the speaker. On October 23 The Hole, a recently produced 
film dealing with the possibilities of accidental thermo-nuclear war will 
be presented. Dr. F. Donald Zucker will bring the series to a close on 
October 30 with a lecture and summary of the previous programs. 
The Reverend Smiley is the Associate 

Secretary for Field Work of the Fellow- 
ship of Reconciliation. The FOR was 
founded in the United States in 1915 and 
is a non-profit religious membership or- 
ganization dedicated to finding solutions 
to inter-group conflicts and international 
struggles in a spirit of love and non- 
violence. Reverend Smiley's message will 
include a discussion of disarmament, the 
test ban treaty and nuclear weapons. 
This meeting will be held in conjunction 
with the congregation of the Palm Luther- 
an Church in Palmyra. Reverend Ger- 
hard Dietrich, pastor of the Palm Church, 
will be host. 

The possibility and probability of a 
final, fatal thermo-nuclear explosion is 
compellingly evoked in The Hole, the 
new animated color film scheduled for 
the October 23 meeting in this series. 
The Hole, a story about two construction 
workers who argue about accidents of 
many kinds and whether accidents can be 
completely prevented, does not set forth 
any program. It is merely a deeply felt 
comment on our times by distinguished 
artists. Following the film there will be 
a discussion of the topic led by Dr. 

Dr. F. Donald Zucker, professor of 
Political science at Ursinus College, will 
bring this series to completion. Dr. 
Zucker was the platform speaker for the 
Middle Atlantic Region Student YWCA 

and YMCA Summer Conference, "You 
and the Nation." His scheduled topic is 
"Our role in the revolution of rising ex- 
pectations among emerging nations." 

Chapel Programs Slated 
For Coming Two Weeks 

The chapel programs for the next two 
weeks will offer thought provoking lec- 
tures by a guest speaker from New Jersey 
and a visiting team from Ohio. 

Dr. W. Neal Raver, pastor of Kemble 
Memorial Methodist Church, Woodbury, 
New Jersey is the scheduled speaker for 
chapel, October 15. After graduating 
from Lafayette College, Dr. Raver re- 
ceived his bachelor of divinity degree 
from the Theological School of Drew 
University and his doctor of divinity de- 
gree from the Union College. 

During Church Vocations Week (Oc- 
tober 21-23), the chapel program will 
feature a visiting team from the EUB de- 
nominational headquarters in Dayton, O. 

Due to illness Mr. Ogden Nash will 
not be able to appear in Lebanon 
Valley's first Artist Series Program. 
Plans are underway to re-schedule his 
lecture for next semester. The first 
Artist Series Program will be the 
Budapest String Quartet. 

1964 College Yearbook 
Earns Excellent Rating 

The 1964 Quittapahilla, yearbook of 
Lebanon Valley College, has earned the 
"A" score from the National School 
Yearbook Association. 

NSYA explains the "excellent" score 
as meaning that "the book is excellent in 
most essentials and especially notable for 
complete coverage. Pictorially and verb- 
ally, it stands among a limited number 
(the upper 30%) of the nation's leading 
books entered for NSYA scoring." 

The 1963 Quittapahilla received spe- 
cial credit for their "attractive" and "for- 
mal" cover and for the index and newly 
instituted student directory. 

The score was arrived at after an ex- 
amination by a professional judge and 
reviewer in the field of student publica- 
tions. The final grade represents the 
judgment of the reviewers according to 
standards set forth in the book and on a 
comparative basis with other books in 
schools of similar size and budgets. 

Judges of NSYA services include H. 
Stephen Carlson, newly elected president 
of the National Association of Journal- 
ism Directors, and other professionals in 
the field of Journalism. N. S. Patterson, 
founder and director of NSYA, is chief 
reviewing judge and editor of PHOTO- 
LITH, the nation's leading publication 
for school yearbook staffs. 

National Radio Program 
Presents Concert Choir 

The Lebanon Valley College Concert 
Choir, under the direction of Pierce A. 
Getz, will once again participate on the 
National Radio Pulpit this year to cele- 
brate the 40th anniversary of the pro- 

The LVC Choir will be one of three 
participating choirs and will perform for 
the five Sunday broadcasts in December. 
The Choir has appeared on the broadcast 
four times in the past two years, starting 
in April of 1962. 

The Reverend Dr. Ralph Sockman, re- 
tired pastor of Christ Church Methodist 
in New York City, will be the speaker 
for the anniversary broadcasts which will 
extend from October 6 through Decem- 
ber 29. 

The National Radio Pulpit is produced 
by the Broadcasting and Film Commis- 
sion of the National Council of Churches. 

LVC Students, Advisor 
Tour G-burg Battlefield 

Dr. Ralph Shay, associate professor of 
history, and senior history majors Lavinia 
A. Beckner and Lance Ledebur will at- 
tend the 32nd annual meeting of the 
Pennsylvania Historical Association. The 
meeting will be held on the campus of 
Gettysburg College on Saturday, October 
12, 1963. 

Students Prepare For 
Underclassmen's Day 

The freshmen will have the opportunity to prove their strength against 
members of the Centennial Class of '66, the best class ever, as they meet 
the sophisticated sophomores on Underclassman's Day on October 25. 
The events will begin at 3:30 p.m. on the athletic field. The annual tug- 
of-war will be held on Saturday at the Quittie. 

The women's competitions include the 

Folk Festival Features 
Andy Williams' Regulars 

There'll be plenty of singing as well as 
picking and plucking of stringed instru- 
ments when Folk Festival '63, starring 
the New Christy Minstrels, checks in at 
the Hershey Sports Arena for a one- 
nighter on October 25, at 8 p.m. Among 
the selections will be pure folk melodies 
as well as parodies of Stephen Foster 

Supporting acts on the show will be 
Judy Collins, star of ABC-TV's Hoote- 
nanny series, and the Brandywine Sing- 
ers, five young men just out of the Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire. Judy made 
the switch from piano to guitar about 
seven years ago while attending the Uni- 
versity of Colorado and has since climb- 
ed high on the ladder to success. The 
Brandywine Singers, with an impressive 
array of personal appearances and re- 
cordings already behind them, have as 
their claim to fame "their button-down 
folk music." 

The New Christy Minstrels is the 
most successful group of folk entertain- 
ers to emerge in 1963. Their current 
smash hit, "Green, Green," is part of 
their four best-selling albums reper- 
toire, recorded in the short span of one 
year; another Columbia album is due 

A versatile group, each member of 
the Christies is an accomplished soloist, 
selected only after countless singer-in- 
strumentalists were auditioned. They have 
succeeded in creating a new sound to 
their own accompaniment of mandolins, 
guitars, banjos, bass and tambourine. 
Their tremendous repertoire ranges from 
tender old English ballads to rousing 
tunes that capture a revival spirit. 

The group's name was adopted in hon- 
of Edward P. Christey who, in 1842, 
formed the famous Christy Minstrels, 
foremost interpreters and popularizers of 
Stephen Foster songs. The New Christy 
Minstrels convey the idea of the minstrel 
or troubadour, the wandering poet-musi- 
cians who flourished during the Middle 

Originally formed as a recording 
group, the Christies have been regulars 
on the Andy Williams Show and are now 
being featured in folk festivals in a limit- 
ed number of Eastern cities. 

50 yard dash, the softball throw, a foul 
shotting contest and the girl's tug. 

Events for the men include a 100 yard 
dash, a wheelbarrow race, a softball 
throw, a football game and the tug. 

The tug-of-war will take place October 
26 at 9 a.m. at the Quittie. The tug is 
usually the deciding factor in determining 
the winner of Underclassmen's Day. The 
rope-holder and referee for this year's 
contest will be Malcolm Lazin. 

Underclassmen's Day is sponsored by 
the Men's Senate and the Resident Wom- 
en's Student Governing Association. 
Coaches for this year's events are Tom 
Webb for the Frosh men and Don Stan- 
ton and Mike Petosa for the Sophomore 
men; Miss Sandy Beltz will coach the 
Frosh women and Miss Carol Mickey 
will be the coach for the Sophomore 
women. Co-chairmen for Underclass- 
men's Day are Miss Carol Warfield and 
Ed Ruth. 

WW Foundation Offers 
Fellowships To Students 

The Woodrow Wilson National Fel- 
lowship Foundation offers in 1964-1965 
one thousand fellowships leading to ca- 
reers in college teaching. Every candi- 
date must be nominated by a faculty 
member no later than October 31, 1963. 
Forms sent to the candidate upon nomi- 
nation must be returned to the Regional 
Chairman by November 20. 

The Foundation annually awards fel- 
lowships to 1,000 prospective first year 
graduate students chosen from about 
10,000 candidates all of whom must be 
citizens of the United States or Canada. 
Further criteria for election is based on 
the quality of a nominee's preparation 
for graduate study: solid foundation at 
the undergraduate level for study leading 
to the Ph.D. degree; competence and fa- 
cility in foreign language and other sub- 
jects required in the pursuit of the disci- 
pline, such as mathematics; ability in the 
writing of essays and of reports on inde- 
pendent work accomplished in the under- 
graduate years. 

Grades, however, are only one indicat- 
or of worth. Regional Committees will 
weigh a candidate's potential as well as 
the quality of his preparation for gradu- 
ate work. 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 10, 1963 j^a > 

The College Student 

What is a college student? As a freshman he tends to be naive and 
energetic to the point of brashness (in the opinion of the more sedate and 
sophisticated upperclassman). At first, Frosh Frolics scare him and sour 
his illusions about college life. He soon sees through the forced nastiness 
of the White Hats, however, and rebels in any way he can. Organizing 
his classmates, he tries to beat the initiators at their own game by playing 
practical jokes and showing school and class spirit. Academically, the 
frosh continue to work in the same way they learned in high school, where 
often more emphasis is placed on extracurricular activities than on home- 

When mid-semester grades are sent home, the freshman who has 
teachers that subscribe to the "scare-em with lots of work and a grade 
lower than they earned" theory goes into shell shock. The frosh suddenly 
finds that he has done something wrong somewhere. Pressure from home 
is now added to the strains of college life. 

A frosh, unfortunately, might never realize until it is too late that 
the study habits he acquired in high school are not sufficient for work 
at the college level. The student who was taught primarily to think might 
not know the length of the tunnel under Jerusalem; the student who was 
taught how to pass tests, such as the college boards, might not be able 
to bluff his way through IS 15, or more valuable, to integrate his facts 
into general concepts without a list to memorize. 

If the professors move slowly in the beginning he has a chance to 
adjust to the physical and social aspects of college before he is flooded 
with assignments. The deluge is inevitable, however, so the hold-off might 
only deceive the freshman. He could become involved in many activities 
and then discover that he does not have as much time as he expected. By 
the time he decides what to give up he could be given up. 

If the frosh returns, it is as a person much wiser in those respects. 
In order to satisfy his two main goals, good grades and an adequate social 
life, he must form proper study habits and conform to how each professor 
expects his students to react to his opinions. The fact and list-memorizer 
finds it equally as easy to study the professor as the book, but the thinker 
with the courage to express his own beliefs to an authoritarian teacher only 
gets himself into trouble. He must learn what specifics to study and when 
not to disagree if he is seeking a top grade. Dormitory jam sessions in- 
clude briefings on the "qualities" of various profs. Professors are often 
forced to literally tell the student what is going to be on the test because 
the material is either inessential facts asked in order to determine whether 
he read the assignments and listened in class or it is basic information 
that the student must have missed in his effort to memorize all the facts. 
In any case, it is in the interest of the student to insure his survival by 
complying with the "rules." 

As the student progresses through his sophomore year the academic 
and psychological pressures of college life squeeze out his exuberance. He 
becomes "dead" serious or rowdy during his leisure time in an effort to 
keep his sanity. The student is termed a "wise fool" because of his il- 
lusion that his year's experience on his own has taught him all there is 
to know about the world. As he continues, however, he realizes how 
little he does know and how much can be gained from the professors who 
really teach. Aware that his chance for intensive study will soon be over 
and that what he misses will be his own loss, the student cares less about 
receiving A's and strives more to gain as much as he can from his college 

The upperclassman looks back on his first year in college with a bit 
of envy, which he conceals by scorning the antics of the frosh. With his 
gradual acceptance of responsibilities, the daily pressures have smothered 
some of his spirit. He knows that his nostalgia is useless, because he can 
never regain the innocent nature he lost in facing his difficulties alone. He 
is able, however, to pick up where he left off and find joy in a productive, 
mature search for wisdom. (NLB)

As we onward strive together. 

We must always work as one. 
Through our experience gained this sea- 

We've found this truth through all 
we've done. 

Courageous class of '67 

May we always wear a smile. 

Let us ne'er forget "Frosh Frolics" 
And hope our dinks will stay in style. 

As the years go quickly by us 
And we look back on these trials, 

We will realize that their purpose

The Contemporary Scene 

by Doug Shaw 

In 1928 Morris K. Frank invented the 
seeing-eye dog. In 1880 Thomas A. 
Edison astounded the world with the first 
incandescent bulb, revolutionizing the 
world's lighting habits. From meager be- 
ginnings the incandescent bulb has been 
produced with varying amounts of power 
for various purposes. One of these pur- 
poses is reading. Recently the college 
administration launched a policy of using 
60 watt bulbs for all purposes but the 
lighting of our newly erected billboards. 
There is little doubt that Morris K. Frank, 
inventor of the seeing-eye dog, would 
fully approve. 

* * * 

"Is that a sixty watt bulb," he asked 

* * * 

Has Someone been working overtime? 
A quote from Tuesday's New York Times 
"Letters to the Times" . . . "Is there any 
reason why so many cars on the IRT 
(Lexington Ave Line, at least) are in a 
state of semi-darkness? So many bulbs 
are out that it is almost impossible to 

read a newspaper . . ."

This year's Homecoming celebration 
happily coincides with National 'Possum 
Day. While no parades or 'possum races 
are scheduled for the local scene, it would 
be appropriate if LVC could contribute. 
Perhaps a 'Possum Queen?

Freshmen Again 

Another scholastic year has begun and once more the campus of 
Lebanon Valley is a thriving metropolis! Returning upperclassmen and 
the incoming freshmen are aware by this time that things are really under 
way. Yes, the next nine months will be busy months. 

Out of these nine school months, there is nothing that reminds us 
more of "good old school days" than the activities of the first few weeks 
of school. The familiar sounds of "Freeze, Frosh" and "We hate the 
White Hats" are enough to make visions of White Hats and blue dinks 
dance in our heads. The Frosh are probably anxiously awaiting the com- 
ing months when they will be able to discard their dinks and not turn blue 
every time they see a White Hat; but, as upperclassmen, we delight in these 
first weeks of school and reminisce of the "fun" we had when we were 

"Ah, to be a Frosh once more," is the cry of many an upperclassman 
upon viewing the high jinks of Frolics or hearing the freshmen loyally 
render the college alma mater. As much as we would like to return to 
those good old days, the freshmen anticipate their coming years as upper- 

The solution to this problem is quite simple. If we as upperclassmen 
can retain the school spirit and the unifying enthusiasm we had as fresh- 
men, and if the class of 1967 can continue to hold high the royal banner 
in anticipating the future, this year should be one of the best that "Valley" 
has ever known. (CAW) 

Guild Member Displays 
Art In Carnegie Lounge 

Through the courtesy of the Old Ber- 
gen Art Guild in Bayonne, New Jersey, 
Lebanon Valley College has on display 
an exhibition of twelve Casein paintings 
by Mildred Tommy Atkin. 

Miss Atkin has studied at the Winold 
Reiss Art School, the Metropolitan Art 
School and the Arthur Schweider Art 

As an executive member of the Artists 
Equity Association, she initiated the Pa 
tron's Committee for its Annual Ball to 
raise funds for indigent artists. To raise 
additional funds for A.E.A., Miss Atkin 
was co-chairman of the artists commit 
tee for the sale of paintings at the Whit- 
ney Museum of American Art. 

For many years, she was chairman of 
finance for the New York chapter of 
the Artists Equity Association. 

Miss Atkin has painted portraits of 
many theatrical celebrities including Shir 
ley Booth, Fay Emerson, Mrs. Earl Wil- 
son, and Mrs. Ed Sullivan. 

Her works may be found in collections 
at the Washington Museum of Fine Arts, 
Hagerstown, Maryland; the Robert Hull 
Fleming Museum, Burlington, Vermont; 
and the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, 

Besides being in the permanent collec 
tions in museums, her work is in many 
noted private collections, among which 
are those of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Sullivan, 
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Benny and Miss Peg- 
gy Ann Garner. 

Miss Atkin has received many awards, 
among which are: Pen and Brush Club, 
oil, in 1958; the National Association of 
Women Artists, 1959; and first prize from 
the Pen and Brush Club, 1960. 

At the present time, she makes her 
home on Park Avenue, New York City 

Her paintings will be on display in 
Carnegie Lounge until October 19. 

Culture — How ? 

If you attended the SCA Skit that was held in Engle Hall on Septem- 
ber 20, or, if you saw the first film of the Lebanon Valley Art Films 
Society on October 1, perhaps you will agree with me. If you were so 
thoroughly disgusted by the lack of facilities we have on this campus to 
make these types of events possible, join with the majority of other students. 

Lebanon Valley College offers a wide variety of programs that are 
intended to develop, improve, enlighten and refine the student's views and 
attitudes toward the world which surrounds him. The Lebanon Valley 
Artists Series, various lecture programs, the Art Films Society, dramatic 
presentations and musical programs are well worth the time of any college 
student as well as members of the faculty and administration and the com- 
munity as a whole. But, how can we hope to have interest in these events 
when it is virtually impossible to find any place on this campus suitable to 
hold them? 

Engle Hall may be your first answer to this problem. However, if 
you did attend the SCA Skit you found that there were not enough seats for 
everyone who was there. Students and professors stood during the entire 
performance. Not only is this ridiculous for a college of our size and 
caliber, but, it is a definite fire hazard. If you attended the Artist Series 
last year you may recall the incident when the radiators were making so 
much noise that the performer had to stop his performance and wait until 
this noise had diminished. Ridiculous? Certainly! And, very embarrasing 
to performer and audience as well. 

The stage facilities are also so poor in Engle Hall as to make an 
entrance from the left side of the stage practically impossible; and, I do 
not even have adequate time or space to go into all the problems of 
lighting and acoustics that are encountered in this, Lebanon Valley's only, 

An Audio Visual Aids Room in our library is an excellent idea. But, 
if you have ever tried to sit through a two hour movie without any avail- 
able fresh air and without any elevation in the floor level you have probably 
become very upset — as have most of us. 

Anyone can put up with a slight inconvenience for a short period of 
time. However, when it appears that little or no attention is being given 
to a problem that is an inconvenience to the campus as a whole, then 
there is something definitely wrong. As a college we should be able to 
provide adequate facilities for the programs we schedule. If this cannot 
be done are we justified in asking speakers and performers to appear 
under the conditions we provide? 

A college chapel is not the answer to this problem unless it can also 
be used as a concert hall, a lecture hall, and a drama and movie theatre. 
Perhaps some serious thought should be given to this problem by those in 
authority before Lebanon Valley College builds another building which is 
not suited to its purpose. (JFR)

Season To Begin For 
Cross Country Team 

The Lebanon Valley College Cross Country Team will begin their 
second season of intercollegiate competition on Saturday, October 12, 
in a meet with Pennsylvania Military College. Dr. James Leamon, 
interim coach, will be directing the Blue and White this year due to the 
recent resignation of Donald Grider, last year's coach. 
With four lettermen returning, the 

Dutchmen should have another fine 
season. The leading returnee from last 
year's seven man squad is Howie Jones, a 
junior from Elizabethtown. In his in- 
itial season of varsity competition, Jones 
notched seven straight victories, breaking 
his own LVC course record time after 

Cross Country Captain Howie Jones 
and Coach Dr. James Leamon discuss 
plans for the impending cross-country 
campaign. Their first competition will 
be this Saturday. 

Supporting Jones will be Bob Riether, 
who last year was the number two man 
on the squad and finished second only to 
Jones in several meets. The other letter- 
men are Donald Burns, a senior from 
Southhampton, and Dick Pell, a sopho- 
more from Broomall. Two upperclassmen 
and five freshmen will support these four 

Last season on the Annville course, the 
Flying Dutchmen ran to a 19-38 win as 
Jones placed first, Riether third, Burns 
seventh, and Pell ninth. If these four 
runners can continue their fine showing 
and some of the newcomers can turn in 
a surprise performance, the Flying Dutch- 
men should "cross the country" to an- 
other successful season. 

LVC Cheerleaders Elect 
Two Freshmen Members 

Two Freshmen have been elected to 
the Lebanon Valley College Cheerleader 
Squad. Misses Linda Forker and Patri- 
cia Thornton were selected as cheerlead-

Dr. Frederic K. Miller has announced 
the appointment of Dr. Robert A. Gris- 
wold, assistant professor of chemistry, 
to the post of Director of Auxiliary 
Schools. As Director of Auxiliary 
Schools, Dr. Griswold will supervise the 
campus summer school operations of the 
college as well as the academic program 
offered by LVC through the Harrisburg 
Area Center for Higher Education. 

Music Students Present 
Autumn Recital Premier 

The Lebanon Valley College Depart- 
ment of Music presented the first of a 
series of Student Recitals on October 6th. 
The recital featured Dorothy Hudson, pi- 
anist; and William Grove, trombonist. 

Miss Hudson, a student of William 
Fairlamb, performed Sonata, Opus 26 by 
Beethoven; Fantasy Pieces, Opus 12 by 
Schumann; Suadades do Brazil by Mil- 
haud; and "The Interpreted Serenade" 
and "Minstrels" from Preludes, Book 1 
by Debussy. 

Mr. Grove, a student of Dr. James 
Thurmond, played "Sarabande" and 
Bouree" from the Suites for Violincello

Dragons Fry Dutchmen 
In Philadelphia Contest 

The Lebanon Valley "Flying Dutch- 
men" traveled to Philadelphia to meet 
the Drexel "Dragons" on Saturday and 
returned home on the short end of a 30-6 

Until the third quarter the Valley was 
very much in the game. However, in 
a seven-mfinute span Drexel produced 
three scoring series and put the game out 
of reach. 

The first period saw only one score as 
Bruno Ceccarelli went three yards for a 
touchdown to climax a 41-yard drive. He 
then added the extra point with a place- 
ment, making the score 7-0 until the half. 

Early in the third quarter LVC tighten- 
ed things up. John Vaszily flipped a 28- 
yard pass to Wes MacMillan, who sprint- 
ed the remaining 30 yards for the score. 
A two point extra point try failed, leaving 
the Valley trailing 7-6. This was as close 
as we got. Drexel moved 50 yards to 
score on another drive by Ceccarelli. A 
pass from Crovetti to King netted two 
more points, making the score 15-6. 

The "Dragons" then pounced on an 
LV fumble on the latter's 26-yard line and 
immediately scored on a pass from Cro- 
vetti to Hank Nowak. A single point 
after the T.D. made it 22-6. 

A recovered onside kick then gave the 
ball to Drexel on the LVC 41, and eight 
plays later Crovetti hit Chuck Farrell for 
the final T.D. of the game. King ran for 
two, making the final score 30-6. 

Wes MacMillan received the Back of 
the Game Award for the second consecu- 
tive week, even though the Dutchmen 
lost. It was a costly game from a per- 
sonnel standpoint, as the already thin line 
lost the services of Jim Duke and Bill 
Hohenshelt. Duke broke his arm and 
Hohenshelt received a knee injury.

employed in the occupational therapy de- 
partment of Haverford State Mental Hos- 
pital and Loretta worked as a lifeguard 
at Sleighton Farm, school for delinquent 
girls. Refreshments will be served. 

The Psychology Club welcomes any 
students interested in the field of psy- 
chology. Meetings are held on the second 
Monday of each month. Last spring the 
club applied to the national honorary 
psychology club, Psi Chi. Programs for 
this year will include a visit to Haverford 
State Hospital in the fall, films and talks 
by various professionals in the field of 

WAA Schedules Hike 

The Women's Athletic Association of 
Lebanon Valley College will have their 
annual hike and picnic for freshmen to- 
night. The hike is used by WAA to ex- 
plain the function and activities of the 
organization to the new frosh. 

LV Back Jake Kimmel picks up yardage in midst of Drexel defenders as John 
Vaszily (16) applies a key block. Next scheduled game for the Flying Dutchmen 
is October 19 with Muhlenberg. 

Dutch Flier 

By Chip Burkhardt 

The Valley is now sporting a 1-1 record in football, which is one 
better than they stood at the same point last year. This, however, is about 
all LVC has to cheer about. The team is just too short on personnel and 
experience. Too many holes have been left open by graduation and injuries. 
Graduation carried away running backs Roger Ward, Fred Porrino, Bill 
Garret, Jerry Bowman and Bob Brill, while the line lost starting tackles 
Vance Stouffer, Ellis McCracken and Center John Yajko. This is a tough 
bill to fill as it is, and the injuries aren't helping. 

Co-captain Glenn Stech has been sidelined by a back injury, leaving 
a 230-pound hole at a tackle position. The Valley offense has slowed as a 
result of All Stater Terry Herr's injuries, which have kept him from putting 
in extensive duty. 

Saturday's game resulted in two more physical setbacks: center Jim 
Duke and guard Bill Hohenshelt were shelved with injuries. Duke suffered 
a broken arm, and Hohenshelt an injured knee. 

The picture isn't entirely dark, however. Wes MacMillan has been 
chosen Back of the Game for the second consecutive week and Jake Kim- 
mel, John Vaszily and Pete Padley fill out an all-lettered backfield. Vaszily 
is always a threat through the air; Padley and Kimmel are capable of turn- 
ing it on for long gainers once they're loose. 

Green Blotter Welcomes 
New Members To Club 

Green Blotter held its first meeting of 
the academic year on October 7, 1963, at 
the home of Dr. and Mrs. Struble. Eric 
Brown, given membership at the close of 
last semester, was welcomed to the club, 
and Paul Ulrich was accepted as a new 
member. The group initiated plans to 
sponsor a poetry contest on campus first 
semester and to publish "Echoes" during 
the year. 

Green Blotter invites students interested 
in creative writing and in joining the or- 
ganization to submit samples of their 
work to the club through Dr. Struble at 
the English office. 

Professor Shay met several under- 
graduates in Taiwan (Formosa) this 
past summer who are interested in 
writing to pen pals in the United 
States. Most of these students attend 
small, liberal arts institutions like 
LVC and all can correspond very well 
in English. If you are interested, 
please see the information sheets Pro- 
fessor Shay has posted on several bul- 
letin boards or see him in his office.

La Vie Inquires 

Valleyites React To 
White Hat Program 

By Carol Mickey 

With the last of the frosh frolics last week came many questions as to 
the effectiveness of this phase of freshman initiation, and the program as a 
whole. Although the ending of frolics does not signify the end of the over- 
all initiation program, it is the closing of a chief duty of the White Hats. 

La Vie Inquires here attempts to present opinions of a cross-section 
of the student body concerning the effect of the initiation program thus far. 

Joe Rutter, president of the White Hats, will give the purpose of the 
freshman initiation and its success in relation to the Class of 1967. Two 
seniors, Sandy Beltz, a former White Hat, and Jim Beck, a member 
of the first class to be initiated by the White Hats rather than the sophomore 
class as a whole, compare this year's initiation to programs of previous 
years. To obtain the freshman viewpoint, La Vie Inquires consults four 
members of the Class of '67 concerning their impressions of the initiation 
thus far. 

Joe Rutter: "As 

'frosh' the Class 
of '67 was or- 
phans to Lebanon 
Valley College. 
Using the name 
orphans I mean 
these men and 
women were new 
to our college 
family. We have 
adopted these men 
and women, now they must prove they 
are worthy of their status. 

"The purposes and objectives confront- 
ed by the White Hats were to test and 
initiate these orphans into this family. 
By learning cheers, names and correspond- 
ing organizations and songs, the group of 
'67 was transformed into a class of '67 
built on class unity and college loyalty. 
The Alma Mater is just one example of 
the link that connects an endless family 
tree of LV alumni and future students. 

"The White Hats have taken the in- 
dividual egos of the freshmen and have 
incorporated them into an ego of a class 
and perhaps more important an ego of a 
college community." 

Sandy Beltz: "I didn't notice any real 
difference in the way the White Hats 
operated this year. The big difference 
was the way in which the freshmen re- 
sponded. There was a time when the 
initiation program seemed to be doing just 
the opposite of what it was intended to 
do. Now that the White Hats have eased 
up, the freshmen are showing that they 
have united and can show their school 
spirit. I think most of them are willing 
to admit that the White Hats did them 
good and that it is a necessary and bene- 
ficial program." 

Jim Beck: "Despite some complaints 
emanating from a small minority of the 
freshman class, I would say that the 
freshman initiation program has been 
more moderate this year than in past 
years. A few years ago when the 
sophomore class as a whole administered 
the program, nightly duck-walking jaunts 
from the library to the cemetery and 
midnight trips through local cow pastures, 
blindfolded and on one's hands and knees, 
were not uncommon events. When the 
White Hats succeeded the sophomore 
class as initiators, a program more con- 
sistent with the actual purposes and ob- 
jectives of the freshman initiation such as 
class unity and school spirit emerged and 
with occasional exceptions was carried out 

skillfully. Certain restrictions have been 
imposed and certain events have been 
eliminated of late, but I don't think these 
measures have affected the potential suc- 
cess of the program. 

"It is difficult to determine the worth 
of the present program at this time, but if 
the recent freshman serenades and cheer- 
ing rallies are any indication of things to 
come, then this year's White Hats have 
more than achieved their purpose and 
justified their existence." 

Skip Updegrove, freshman: "I am very 
much in favor of an organized initiation 
program such as the one here at LVC 
because it helps the freshmen to adjust 
to college life, and it offers many op- 
portunities to meet new people. The White 
Hats become a common interest and a 
main topic of conversation. The pro- 
gram also stimulates class unity and 
school spirit, which makes the freshmen 
feel as though they are a part of the 
college, and the initiation is not overdone 
and carried to a point of individual per- 

Joan Borshard, freshman: "The White 
Hat initiation program provided the fresh- 
men with fun (despite behind-door com- 
plaints) — CLASS fun. It did separate us 
from the upperclassmen, most obviously, 
but it also got us together. 

"I personally can say it is most defin- 
ately a worth while program. Tribunal 
was an instilled fear in me, as well as the 
others who were being tried. I learned 
gradually to take it all in its proper per- 
spective, and since things have pretty 
much calmed down, we can all think it 
over and laugh at shower caps and duck 

Helaine Hopkins, freshmen: "Initiation 
really did a lot for our class. All through 
frolics and the White Hats' 'meanness' we 
were in a constant state of excitement. It 
created a unity in our class that nothing 
else could have ... we were all in it to- 
gether and could always turn to each 
other with questions. 

Personally, I had a wonderful time all 
through the initiation, especially in 
frolics, and I think the kids who didn't 
participate missed a lot!" 

Damon Silvers, freshman: "Upon ar- 
rival at LVC I was apprehensive about 
meeting the upperclassmen. But, after 
meeting the White Hats I began to see 
the true purpose of the organization. It 
tried to bring us together and unite our 
class. I definitely feel the program should 
be continued."

Good news for all starving co-eds from 
Kappa Lambda Nu — these ambitious sis- 
ters will be selling hoagies in the girls' 
dormitories every Sunday, Tuesday and 
Thursday evening during the entire year. 

Also, plans for a rummage sale — a 
whale of a rummage sale — are underway. 
The bargain day is set for October 12, 
Columbus Day. Save your pennies! 

Hungry co-eds flourish on this campus 
and Delta Lambda Sigma has their best 
interests in mind as they sell 5c candy 
bars — any and all kinds. And, for that 
special occasion buy a Delphian contem- 
porary card. 

The Knights of the Valley have an- 
nounced that October 18 will be the date 
for their first Open House. The party 
will be from 8-11 p.m. Come alone or 
bring a friend — the House is open to 
everyone. And for that extra incentive, 
refreshments will be served. 

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia will hold its 
first semester Smoker on October 14 at 
9 p.m. All men involved or actively in- 
terested in music are welcome to attend. 
The affair will be held in the Sinfonia 
room of Engle Hall. 

On October 24 eight officers of Phi Mu 
Alpha along with Dr. Thurmond, faculty 
advisor, will travel to Altoona, Pa., for a 
Province Workshop. Held in all 32 
Provinces across the nation, these work- 
shops clarify responsibilities of the local 
chapters, duties of local chapter officers, 
and provide a means of knitting the 
Province Chapters together in fellowship. 

Sinfonia's Jazz Band was recently re- 
organized for the 1963 Jazz Concert. Un- 
der this year's leader, John Hutchcroft, a 
varied program is being planned for the 
November 8 concert. 

Dr. Shay Describes Trip To Orient 

JVapier Stated Viewd 
On World Situation* 

by Dorothy Hudson 

Dr. B. Davie Napier of the Yale Uni- 
versity Divinity School presented three 
significant lectures at Lebanon Valley on 
October 7 and 8. Those who attended 
the Balmer Showers lectures were un- 
doubtedly impressed by his linguistic 
facility and forthright conviction. 

In an interview with La Vie, Dr. 
Napier's views of the contemporary 
world situation were explored. When 
asked whether he could name any true 
prophets of the twentieth century, he 
stated that "if we accept the duty of the 
prophet as that of boldly condemning 
society, then our dramatists, novelists and 
artists are our present day seers. The 
secular world seems to echo with more 
prophet-like voices than the world within 
the church." Although he feels the kind 
of role played by prophets is more often 
found outside organized religion, he ven- 
tured to name Martin Luther King as a 
prophet of the twentieth century. 

Dr. Napier urges speed in the full 
realization of civil rights. He states that 
"there are no religious or theoligical 
grounds for a slowdown; there is no way 
to interpret religion to justify delay in 
granting these rights." 

Concerning the test ban treaty, he 
states that "although the present treaty 
may not be entirely satisfactory, nothing 
will ever reach that point. It is an im- 
portant but small step in the reduction of 
worldwide anxiety." Dr. Napier's opinion 
is that even if our own security is weak- 
ened by the test ban treaty, the psycho- 
logical gain outweighs this relaxation of 
defenses. He poses the question, "What 
would happen to our stock in African 
nations if we hadn't passed it?" 

Dr. Napier's position as an authority on 
the Old Testament grants him an ex- 
tensive background from which to speak. 
His views on the world today are re- 
freshingly up-to-date and contain hints of 
prophecy themselves.

Dr. Ralph S. Shay, chairman of the department of history and political 
science at Lebanon Valley College, was one of twenty-three Americans to 
participate in the Summer Institute in Chinese Civilization held recently at 
the University of Tunghai in Taiwan. This program, established under the 
Fulbright-Hayes Act, enables professors of small liberal arts colleges to 
take part in an intensive study of a civilization other than their own. Dur- 
ing a seven-week period every conceivable phase of this culture is presented 
in lectures, seminars and field trips.

LVC Music Department 
Presents Faculty Recital 

The Lebanon Valley College Depart- 
ment of Music will present Mrs. Nevelyn 
Knisely, pianist, and Thomas Lanese, vi- 
olinist, in the first faculty recital on 
October 20, at 3 p.m. in Engle Hall. 

Mrs. Knisely will perform Three So- 
natas, "D Minor," "B Minor," and "G

"Allegro Molto," "Andante," "Allegro 
Vivo," and "Allegro Quasi Presto" from 
Sonata in A. Opus 13, by Faure. 

This summer the program was directed 
by six professors, four Chinese and two 
Americans. The fields of study covered 
five major areas: Chinese art, Chinese 
thought and society, classical Chinese 
literature, modern Chinese literature, and 
Chinese history. These were supplement- 
ed by special lectures. 

In spite of the full schedule arranged 
for the participants, Dr. Shay found time 
for a week-long trip to Japan, where he 
visited many of the major cities. He also 
spent some time in the homes of Chinese 
students, where he was introduced to the 
native food, most of which he found to 
be quite good. However, he reports that 
it was good to return to his native fare 
when he was able to enjoy a steak dinner 
while on a train during one of his many 

His last week in the Orient was spent 
in Taipeh, the capital of Taiwan. Here 
he toured the various agencies of the Chi- 
nese government and the United States 
Embassy. His journey was climaxed by 
an audience with Chiang Kai-shek. 

Heading homeward, Shay paused for 
brief stopovers in Hong Kong, Macao and 
the Philippines. Everywhere he met Leb- 
anon Valley alumni and friends. His final 
stop before reaching the continental Uni- 
ted States was in Honolulu, where he 
was introduced to the parents of Ken 
Lee, a senior student at LVC. Of his 
new acquaintances in general, Dr. Shay 
said that the people everywhere were 
"just wonderful." 

Dr. Tom Becomes Head 
Of Economics Seminar 

As one of the recipients of the General 
Electric Foundation Grant, Dr. C. F. 
Joseph Tom, assistant professor of eco- 
nomics, attended a four-week Seminar 
on Contemporary Economics at the 
University of Virginia early this summer. 
The program centered around two basic 
themes: the measurement of the Soviet 
economic growth and the role of the 
government compared with market forces 
in resource allocation. Forty colleges 
and universities from twenty-seven states 
were represented in this Seminar. 

Dr. Tom was also elected to serve as 
chairman for the members of the Semi- 
nar. A reunion of the members of the 
Seminar at the next Annual Meeting of 
the American Economic Association at 
Boston, Massachusetts, during the Christ- 
mas holiday is under consideration. 

During his stay at Charlottesville, Dr. 
Tom and his family also visited some of 
the historical and scenic sites in Virginia. 
These included: the battlefield at Bull 
Run, the Appomattox Court House, the 
Civil War Centennial Center and the for- 
mer White House of the Confederacy in 
Richmond, Monticello, Ash Lawn, the 
Natural Bridge and the Skyline Drive.

Tug, Football Game, 
Homecoming Dance 
Are Today's Features 

A record number of alumni and parents are on campus today to help 
celebrate Lebanon Valley College Day, an event that combines features of 
Homecoming Day, Underclassmen's Day and Parents' Day. Highlighting 
today's program was the crowing of the queen during the half-time of the 
football game between Lebanon Valley College and Moravian. 

Remaining on the agenda for the day are the informal get-togethers, 
dormitory and fraternity open house, a movie and the annual Homecoming 

Green Blotter To Hold 
College Poetry Contest 


The activities began this morning with 
the annual tug-of-war across the Quit- 
tapahilla Creek between the freshmen and 
the upperclassmen to determine whether 
the frosh, by winning, will be permitted 
to shed their dinks before Thanksgiving. 

At 10 a.m. the Humanities Division 
sponsored the annual Alumni Seminar. 
Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean of the college, 
set the tone for the seminar with an ad- 
dress entitled "Man Humanized or 
Atomized." Following this, the visitors 
had an opportunity to participate in one 
of three special departmental programs. 

The department of philosophy and re- 
ligion sponsored a panel on "The Role 
of the Minister in Dealing with Emotional 
Problems of People Today." Dr. James 
O. Bemesderfer, college chaplain, served 
as moderator; and Dr. Harold C. Hollings- 
worth, pastor of the First Evangelical 
United Brethren Church, Palmyra, and 
Dr. Warren S. Silliman, a physician from 
Windsor, Connecticut, were the panelists. 
All three are alumni of LVC. 

The department of foreign languages 
conducted demonstrations in the language 
laboratories, with Dr. Elizabeth Piel, 
chairman of the department, speaking on 
"The Value of the Study of Languages 
from the Standpoint of the Humanities." 
The department of English demonstrated 
the Peterson Method of teaching composi- 
tion under the leadership of Richard 
Spitzer, director of Science Research. 

The day's program also included three 
athletic contests with teams from Mora- 
vian College: a girl's hockey game and a 
cross-country meet in the morning and 
the football game in the afternoon.

College Nominates Frey 
For All-America Award 

Raymond T. Frey, an alumnus of 
LVC, is one of five men from Pennsyl- 
vania nominated for the Sports Illustrated 
Silver Anniversary All-America Award. 

A physical therapist, he was nominated by 
Lebanon Valley College. 

With an excellent football and basket- 
ball record and the promise of a fine 
coaching career, Mr. Frey was blinded 
during a military training mission in 1943. 
During his recovery, he decided to go into 
rehabilitation work and help more than 
700 blinded World War II veterans. 
Trained as a physical therapist, he is now 
with the Lebanon Veterans Administra- 
tion Hospital. He has been awarded a 
citation for meritorious service in employ- 
ment of the physically handicapped. 

The final selection of the annual roster 
is made by a panel of distinguished citi- 
zens, now deliberating, and announcement 
of the 25 winners will be made by the 
magazine in December. This award is 
unique, however, in that nomination 
alone is regarded as a special honor, since 
colleges and universities do not nominate 
in a year when they do not have a candi- 
date of winning caliber.

National Teacher Exams 
To Be Held In February 

College seniors planning to teach school 
will be able to take the National Teacher 
Examinations on February 15, 1964. This 
date for the annual nationwide administra- 
tion of tests for prospective teachers was 
announced recently by Educational Test- 
ing Service, a non-profit agency which 
also prepares College Board and gradu- 
ate school admissions tests. 

Scores on the National Teacher Exami- 
nation are used by many large school 
districts for employing new teachers, and 
by several states for granting teaching 
certificates or licenses. Some colleges re- 
quire all seniors preparing to teach to 
take the tests. Lists of school systems 
which use the examinations are being dis- 
tributed by the service to college educa- 
tion teachers. 

More than four hundred centers have 
been set up throughout the nation for 
the February 15 examinations. At the 
full day session, future teachers may take 
the Common Examinations, testing their 
professional knowledge and general edu- 
cational background, and one or two of 
the thirteen Optional Examinations, meas- 
uring mastery in the subjects they expect 
to teach. Prospective teachers should 
contact the school systems in which they 
expect to seek employment, or their col- 
leges, for specific advice on taking the 

Bulletins of information containing 
registration forms and detailed informa- 
tion about the February 15 administration 
of the tests may be obtained from the 
college placement offices, school person- 
nel departments, or directly from: Na- 
tional Teacher Examinations, Educational 
Testing Service, Princeton, N. J. Registra- 
tion for the tests opens November 1, 1963, 
and closes January 17, 1964.

La Vie Collegienne, Saturday, October 26, 1963 


Man, it seems, lives under the illusion that the world operates by itself. 
As long as he puts in his required forty hours of work per week, he feels 
justified in spending the rest of the time oblivious to everything but him- 
self and his immediate needs. He does not even allow the problems, con- 
flicts and rapid changes of this modern age to disturb his lethargy. If his 
senses are not dulled by the steady force and complexity of the world's 
troubles, he numbs his resulting hypertensive feelings with aspirin and 

So much has happened so quickly that man feels he has seen every- 
thing; that there is nothing new under the sun. He must not let the world 
bother him because he cannot make it any better. He might only get 
hurt. Taking care of himself is a full-time job since no one else will help. 
Man is now so dulled that he does not react when he sees a neighbor at- 
tacked and robbed on a New York City street in broad daylight. 

Having never faced the reality that he is responsible for the state of 
the world, man escapes the challenge to make peace with his neighbor by 
increasing his expenditures for defense and building fall-out shelters. In 
this way he can blame "the world situation" rather than himself. 

What is behind this fear to try to live peaceably with his neighbor? 
Why does he choose to exist alone? Perhaps he feels that the world has 
grown out of control; that he might fail in his attempt to improve world 
relations. To try to change the world instead of adapting to it is taking 
a big chance. Man fears that a failure might bring his extinction through 
a nuclear holocaust. 

Man needs to realize, however, that he does control his destiny; that 
by abdicating his rule he only allows himself to drift toward self-destruction. 
What, then, must he do to save and benefit humanity? He must accept 
responsibility for the state of the world and at least try to make the small 
part over which he has direct control a better place in which to live. This 
is necessary for his survival in the presence of the hydrogen bomb. 

On the college level, apathy toward that which is liked and muffled, 
ineffectual complaining directed against less desirable aspects aid the 
student in evading responsibility for the conditions on his campus. Possi- 
bly he feels that showing an interest in college matters would be useless 
because he does not make policy. Consequently, he does not bother to 
fill out a questionnaire on, for example, the desirability of a student union 

The recent burmuda rule repeal and the dining hall dress rule for 
examination periods, although very small and relatively unimportant things 
when compared to man's relation to the world, represent the ability of 
interested students to influence college policy. The faculty and administra- 
tion are often unaware of undesirable aspects until told by a student. Per- 
haps if more interest were shown, students might be able to influence a 
small release of academic pressures that would allow more time for "cul- 
ture." Maybe next year there might be enough time to produce a play 
for Homecoming. (NLB) 

Your Pep 

Previous to last Friday many upperclassmen thought that the fresh 
man class was achieving a close unity and identification with the college 
family as a whole. 

Much to the dismay of many upperclassmen few freshmen seemed to 
remember that this day was Pep Day. They had forgotten that LVC had a 
football game the next day at Muhlenberg. 

Perhaps since Valley had no game the previous weekend, they had 
forgotten about this practice. There may have been other reasons, but 
nevertheless what had happened to Pep Day? 

Frosh were wearing their usual school clothes, rather than dressing 
up as specified by the White Hats. Few freshmen wore pep signs, let alone 
large pep signs. 

Indeed after White Hats had reprimanded some frosh, thy did begin 
to appear with signs, but they were usually being carried. 

Another display of lack of spirit is the refusal of frosh men to wear 
dinks. This can't be blamed entirely on the men, but they are the major 

What are the reasons for this seeming lack of unity and spirit? Are 
frosh forgetting that they are still in the midst of an initiation program 
which is intended to unify them and initiate them into the college com 

The pep signs are not worn for the benefit of the White Hats and 
upperclassmen, but they are worn to show members of our football team 
that not only our freshmen but the entire student body is on their side and 
cheering them to victory. Frosh, let's stop complaining about lack of school 
spirit, and start wearing those signs and dinks. 

Of course, upperclassmen are guilty of lack of school spirit anc 
enthusiasm. We should join the frosh more vigorously when they are 
cheering en masse at our remaining home games. White Hats require anc 
direct the frosh cheering section, but upperclassmen should cheer of their 
own free will and have true school spirit. 

With our home football season just beginning, the entire student body 
must give our team support if we expect our classmates to play their best 
to bring us the victories. Frosh, show other members of the college com 
munity that you still have the spirit and unity you seemed to have during 
your first few weeks at Valley. (CAM) 

The Contemporary Scene 

by Doug Shaw 

Once upon a time, in the land of 
Chequer-board Squares, there occurred a 
rivalry between the two types of Squares, 
the White Squares and the Black Squares. 
"You are treating us as a minority group," 
said the Black Squares, for there were 
fewer of them and they really were a 
minority. "What we do is in your best 
interests," answered the White Squares, 
who taught their children the "3 R's," 
Righteousness, Reverence, and Rationali- 
zation. "You are only unhappy because 
you think you are." 

And so the Black Squares rallied around 
olden-voiced tetragons (whom the White 
Squares called Evil Quadralaterals) and 
demanded that they be given what they 
considered a Square Deal. First they 
wrote petitions and held meetings in huge 
Quadrangles. The White Squares, remem- 
bering their school lessons, thought, "This 
should not be. Therefore it can not be. 
We shall ignore it." And ignore it they 

The Black Squares said, "If you will 
not give us our Square Deal we shall exer- 
cize our Right to be Uncivil. We shall 
picket your building projects and sit in 
your schools until all of Chequer-board 
quare learns that White Squares and 
Black Squares share the same shape and 
were created by the same Divine Right 

And both sides squared off for a True 
Battle. The White Squares, since there 
were more of them, turned dark with rage. 
The Black Squares, since there were fewer 
of them, paled with fright. After a while 
no one could tell which Squares belonged 
on which side and this was extremely 

Soon all the Squares got together and 
buried their hatchets, a white one and a 
black one. A few die-hards tried to chip 
each others' corners, but there was little 
trouble. And from that day on everyone 
the land of Chequer-board Squares 
lived happily ever after — in a round-about 
sort of a way, of course. 

JfetterA ZJo j£a Vie 

To the Editor of La Vie: 

I am writing this letter as the result of 
an occurrence which took place in Chapel 
on October 15. At the end of the service, 
immediately following the Benediction, 
many of the students, and especially those 
in the balcony, began their mass exodus 
from the Chapel to the accompaniment of 
the Chapel Choir's closing music. In fact, 
the noise was so loud that the accom- 
paniment was almost completely drowned 
out. This has happened many times be- 
fore and I feel that something should be 
done to help Valley's students learn to 
show a little more respect for the church 
and for their fellow students. 

The Chapel Choir must put in time to 
prepare for their part in the service and 
I feel it is only right that we show that 
we appreciate their effort by remaining 
quiet until the entire service has been 

Certainly, everyone at Lebanon Valley 
College can read and can see that some 
services end with a choral prayer. Can't 
we please show a little more respect in 
the future? Respectfully, 
Hannah Pisle

The college fraternity, that Greek-American institution, has met with 
more criticism and more defense lately than many national and interna- 
tional problems. Along with unfair professors, pop quizzes, and Saturday 
night's date, it still remains one of the prime topics of discussion on the 
college campus. 

Those opposed to the Greek letter institution find the national frater- 
nity snobbish, steeped in illogical traditions, and supported by alumni and 
students who never quite grew out of their sophomore year. On the other 
side are the "brothers" who insist that the fraternity fosters scholarship, 
brotherhood, and aids in the development of the social graces and demo- 
cracy as a whole. 

While the number of students belonging to national fraternities and 
sororities is at an all-time high, there is a trend among many colleges and 
universities, at this time, to do away with them. In a world where soldiers 
are ordered to a university campus to aid in integration and the nation is 
begging for intellectual supremacy, the Greeks are being looked at in an 
anti-intellectual and highly discriminating light. The fraternities are now 
accused of placing too much emphasis on brotherhood and social functions, 
conformity and especially severe selectivity. 

This selectivity, or discrimination, is one of the more crucial aspects 
of the fraternity criticism. As a result, many fraternities are revising their 
constitutions, charters and rules. They are accepting members who were, 
perhaps, overlooked or not even considered in past years due to their race, 
religion or nationality. Yes, it appears that the Greeks are meeting and 
overcoming this one challenge that has been directed at them. Now, it is 
time to look a little closer at our own campus. 

Lebanon Valley College boasts five non-national "fraternities" and 
"sororities". In the past few years these organizations have found it 
necessary to become selective and limit the number of their members. 
While many argue that this is life — that rejection and acceptance on the 
job, in the country club, and among friends in general is the bitter truth of 
the American society — others insist that this defeats the real purpose of ed- 
ucation. By selecting and screening members, the organizations too often 
overlook the more quiet, retiring person, the very one that would most 
benefit their group. If this very issue is being met and overcome to some 
degree among national fraternities, why can not our five organizations 
(a much smaller scale than national fraternities) do something about this 
problem? Are the present members really justified in determining who 
should and should not belong? 

It is certainly true that organizations cannot become so large that they 
are unmanageable. If this is the case, if it becomes necessary to limit 
membership because there are more students who desire to join a group 
than the organization can hope to accommodate, then I believe there is a 
definite need for more organizations from which the students can choose. 
With more campus organizations for both men and women at LVC, more 
students can belong and the weeding-out process can be eliminated to a 
large degree. 

The problem becomes more and more serious with each passing year. 
The time to act is now. I believe it is up to each present "fraternity" and 
"sorority" to examine and evaluate this matter and to aid and assist in every 
way possible in the establishment of new social organizations on our ever- 
growing campus. (JKR) 

College Introduces 
A 11 World Course 

The International College in Copen- 
hagen, Denmark, will launch a new pro- 
gram, the "All World Course," in the 
fall 1964. Assisted by guest lecturers, 
the students and the director of ICC will 
be working together in a closely-knit 
group exploring the contemporary geo- 
graphical, economic, political, social, and 
cultural situations in the various countries 
of our world. 

Offered in the curriculum are a tour 
of Scandinavia, two two-week summer 
sessions termed "Introduction to Den- 
mark," a two month summer session in 

"Scandinavian Studies," a study tour in 
East-West relationships through Poland 
and East and West Berlin, winter courses 
called "Individual Training Program" and 
"All World Seminar," and a Christmas 
tour of Mallorca, Spain, for recreation. 

ICC's approach to these studies is in- 
formal. Its aims are: to create a forum 
for discussion of political, social and cul- 
tural problems; to give foreign students ex- 
perience in living with Scandinavian cul- 
ture; to promote international knowledge 
and understanding; to assist in individual 
growth; to build personal friendships. 

Interested students are encouraged to 
write to: Mr. Henning Berthelsen, Direc- 
tor of ICC, Dalstoget 140, Soborg, Copen- 
hagen, Denmark.

munity Resources in the Teaching of So- 
cial Studies." 

The Central Pennsylvania Education 
Conference was organized in 1958. Since 
its inception, programs have been held 
for approximately 3,000 teachers, admini- 
strators and other school personnel. 

McKlveen Attends 
Visual Aids Group 

Dr. Gilbert D. McKlveen attended a 
conference at the Department of Health, 
Education, and Welfare in Washington, 
D. C. on October 8. Presented by two 
men from San Jose, California, the 
conference was a demonstration on 
the latest audio-visual aids in education. 
Lewis, the author of the text used in the 
audio-visual course here at Lebanon Val- 
ley, was one of the two contributors. This 
workshop was sponsored by the national 

There were three outstanding things 
presented at the conference. The first 
was a demonstration of the uses of an 
8 millimeter sound projector with students 
synchronizing the sound with the film. 
The second showed the use of cameras, 
opaque projectors, and overhead projec- 
tors being synchronized to present closed- 
circuit television. Finally a very impres- 
sive look at the history of student refer- 
ence material was shown, from the time 
when nothing more than books were 
available, through the eras of tapes, micro- 
films, and finally ending with a look in- 
to the future. Students will soon be able 
to borrow from the library a small video 
tape which, when viewed in a private tele- 
vision booth, will allow the student to see 
a complete television show, movie, etc.

Ehrhart Explains 
AB vs BS Degree 

How many times have there been ques- 
tions as to the distinction between the 
Bachelor of Arts degree and the Bachelor 
of Science degree? In an attempt to 
learn the distinction, La Vie interviewed 
Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean of the college. 

According to Dr. Ehrhart there is no 
simple distinction 'between the two de- 
grees. At Lebanon Valley the A. B. de- 
gree is given to students in the areas of 
the humanities and the social studies while 
most science majors and majors in the 
fields of elementary education, economics 
and business administration, and music 
education receive the B.S. degree. 

Dean Ehart during interview with La 

Dr. Ehrhart elaborated on the B. S. 
degree by stating that the term really has 
two meanings: first, it indicates ground- 
ing in the four major areas of science — 
biology, chemistry, mathematics, and 
physics; and second, it is given to majors 
in the three professional areas previously 

It is in the area of the B.S. degree 
where we encounter the most difficulty 
in making the proper distinction. The 
B.S. degree with a major in science indi- 
cates that a biology, mathematics or 
physics major has completed the basic 
courses in biology, chemistry, mathe- 
matics and physics. If a major in one of 
these fields fails to take one of the four 
basic courses, he will receive an A.B. 
degree. Chemistry majors receive either 
the B.S. degree with a major in science, or 
the B.S. in Chemistry degree. 

Some colleges have abolished the B.S. 
degree. This is usually done because the 
A.B. is the traditional liberal arts degree. 

According to the United States Depart- 
ment of Health, Education, and Welfare 
publication, Academic Degrees, the first 
A.B. degree in the U.S. was conferred by 
Harvard College in 1642. This was the 
only degree used in America for 125 
years. The next bachelor's degree con- 
ferred was the Bachelor of Medicine. 

Harvard also conferred the first B.S.

John Vaszily (10) and Jake Kim me] (25) team up to bring down a Muhlenberg 
runner in last weeks encounter at AUentown. 

Muhlenberg, Injuries 
Rout Valley Squad 

The LVC Flying Dutchmen lost a battle to the virus, injuries and 
Muhlenberg last Saturday by a 28-16 count. 

After piling up a quick 16-9 first period lead, the team, weakened by 
loss of personnel to the current virus and by the mounting injury list, could 
not keep up the pace and, bit by bit, were beaten back by the Muhlenberg 

In the first period the Valley crossed 
the line twice on aerials by John Vaszily. 
The first was a four yarder to Wes Mac- 
Millan and the second a six yarder to 
freshman Dave Padley. A pair of two 
point extra points, one to Larry Painter 
and another to Terry Herr, accounted for 
the 16-0 score going into the second 

At this point the complexion of the 
game began to change as the Mules struck 
back for two as Lynn Rothrock went 
eight yards for a score and Charlie John- 
son went over from the one for another. 
The tries for the extra points failed and 
the half time score was 16-12 LVC. 

In the second half the Valley just 
couldn't get a scoring drive going as Muh- 
lenberg added markers in each period. 
Johnson scored his second of the day 
from the one and in the final period 
Rothrock put the icing on the cake with a 
74 yard return of the Valley passing at- 
tempt. Passes from Tony Capobianco to 
Larry Havey, from Havey to Dave Binder 
provided the extra points making the 
game 28-16. 

The Valley statistics indicate that they 
didn't have as much trouble moving the 
ball as they did in scoring. They piled 
up 17 first downs to Muhlenberg's 7, com- 
pleted 17 passes out of 27 and gained 210 
yards in doing so to Muhlenberg's 79 
and were only outgained on the ground 
by 18 yards as Muhlenberg racked up 149 
yards to LVC's 131. A major factor in 
the game however was the 3 interceptions 
of passes and one fumble recovery by the 
Mules as compared to one in each de- 
partment by the "Dutchmen." 

LVC Hockey Team 
Elects Co-Captains 

The 1963 LVC Women's Hockey Team 
has elected Sandy Beltz and Marcia Mil 
ler as co-captains for the season. The 
"Dutchwomen" have lost their first four 
games to Millersville, Shippensburg, 
E-town and Muhlenberg. Consequently 
many hopes have been placed on the 
two remaining games with Moravian and 
Dickinson. Both of these games are 
home games. 

In the Millersville game the LVC wo- 
men finished half-time with a 3 to 1 lead, 
however, the Millersville team was able 
to come back in the second half to score 
five goals resulting in defeat for the 
Dutchwomen" 6 to 4. Sandy Beltz was 
responsible for 3 of the 4 LVC goals with 
Marcia Miller accounting for the fourth. 

Despite excellent play on the part of 
freshmen Bobbie Macaw, Meripat Smith 
and Co-captains Beltz and Miller, the Val- 
ley team has just not been able to score 
the necessasry goals when they have been 
needed. In the following three games the 
LVC hockey team fell to defeat with the 
scores being Shippensburg 6, LVC 2; 
E-town 8, LVC 0; and Muhlenberg 5, 
LVC 0.

LV Harriers Split Meet 
With E-town, Dickinson 

The LVC cross country team kept its 
record at an even 2-2 by splitting con- 
tests with Elizabethtown and Dickinson 
on the E-town course. The Valley took 
the E-town Blue Jays by a 33-26 score, 
but were on the short end of a 23-35 
count to Dickinson's Red Devils. 

Captain Howie Jones covered the 
course in the best time for Valley with a 
23:44 clocking, followed by Bob Reither 
at 24:10, Harold Giles at 24:42, Bill Ging- 
rich at 25:15, Paul Murphy at 25:40, Jim

Dutch Flier 

By Chip Burkhardt 

Since most of the emphasis of Homecoming is placed on the football 
game, I feel that this is an appropriate time to take a look at some of the 
grid history of the Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon Valley College. 

Football was introduced here in 1898. Games were played with 
Harrisburg High (0-0), Gettysburg (0-6), Ursinus (0-6 and 0-25), Harris- 
burg Academy, (58-0), Dickinson (0-56 , Franklin and Marshall Academy 
(28-7), York YMCA (0-24), and Mercersburg Academy (16-16). 

By 1901 the LVC team had become so good that Harrisburg High 
and York YMCA would no longer schedule them. They then began play- 
ing such foes as Carlisle (0-28) and Muhlenberg. Valley continued playing 
Carlisle for 15 seasons and in 1916 they finally scored. The only points 
we ever scored against the school Jim Thorpe made famous were the 33 
scored in this 1916 finale to the series as the Valley won 33-0. The closest 
previous score had been a 0-0 tie in 1915. The total score for the series 
was 539 for the Indians and 33 for the Dutchmen. 

After sending Carlisle packing, the Valley began looking for bigger 
game and tackled West Point and Penn State. In 1916 we lost a game to 
the Cadets 0-3, the best we ever did against them. This is the closest Army 
came to losing in an undefeated campaign that included a 30-10 victory 
over Notre Dame. The Corps, however, put it to the Dutchmen in the 
succeeding years by scores of 50-0, 53-0, 33-0, 12-0, and 74-0. 

In 1919 LVC threw a real scare into State — they scored. State then 
proceeded to make sure that the score wouldn't be too close and won 
109-7. In the following years, however, Valley got closer and closer until 
in 1935 the score was only 12-6. Knowing that LVC was on its way to 
bigger and better things, State got out while it was still ahead sixteen games 
to none. 

Actually Valley had some real good teams during these years and 
piled up some fairly impressive scores. In 1911 we bounced Highspire 
Athletic Club 102-0 and in 1927 beat Brown 13-12. In 1926 the Dutch- 
men beat Villanova 30-12 and in 1916 Dartmouth was barely able to win 
by a 3-0 count. With Temple we have broken even over the years, scoring 
one win, one loss, and one tie. The 46-0 trouncing the Owls got, however, 
was the most impressive score of the series. 

The Valley schedule no longer includes teams such as Army, Penn 
State and other powers. On the other hand, neither does it play teams 
such as thet 3rd Army Corps (10-7 in 1924), the Lebanon All-Collegiates, 
Annville Athletics, Pennsylvania Railroad YMCA (0-16 in 1900), or the 
Steelton East Ends. Today's game is against a rival who first met LVC in 
1902 and lost 22-0. Moravian's Greyhounds, who come to us from 
Bethlehem, hope to reverse the one-sided scores handed them by the 
Dutchmen in the past two campaigns. In 1961 Valley won 37-14 and last 
season by a 30-8 score. Valley has lost its last two Homecoming games 
and hopes to make this one a day for celebrating a return to the winning 
side of the ledger. If the team is not too weakened by the loss of personnel 
I see this as being extremely possible. After all, Moravian doesn't have 
Jim Thorpe in its backfield.

LVC Seniors Report 
Grid Prospects Good 

Any competitive organization, especially an athletic team, tends to 
look to its senior members for an example of sportsmanship and leader- 
ship which it can follow. These older, more experienced team members 
must put out a little more effort than the others on the team, for they are 
expected to instill spirit and a sense of determination in their companions. 

Lebanon Valley College is fortunate to have two such players on its 
team, Wes MacMillan and Mike Kildee. 
A political science major, Wes comes 

to Valley from Shippensburg where he 
graduated from Big Spring High School. 
VVes has played at the quarterback posi- 
tion since his freshman year at Valley. 
Last year he moved to the back spot in 
several games, and this year he has been 
one of the backbones of our backfield for 
LVC. Wes was an All-MAC quarter- 
back last year. 

Reading Group To Hold 
Discussion On J. Joyce 

The Reading Discussion Group will 
hold its third meeting this year on No- 
vember 1 at 8 p.m. in Carnegie Lounge. 
Three short stories by James Joyce will 
be discussed. They are: "The Dead," "A 
Little Cloud," and "A Painful Case." 

This group, which meets every other 
week, is an informal group open to any- 
one who has done the reading. Faculty 
members as well as students are cordially 
invited to attend the meetings. 

The Reading Discussion Group was 
formed last year in an effort to promote 
the reading and discussing of contempo- 
rary literature. The meetings are kept in 
formal; all ideas arising from the readings 
are discussed. 

Wes McMillan 

Wes, Valley's captain, is regarded as 
one of the finest players to appear in a 
Lebanon Valley College uniform. He 
provides an optimistic view of the foot- 
ball future at LVC as he describes our 
gridiron prospects for the remainder of 
the current season: "We've had a lot of 
tough breaks, such as a lack of depth, 
caused by key injuries, and hot weather, 
which always makes things rough, 
think a lot of the fellows are coming back 
to full strength, and there should be 
definite improvement very soon." 

And most of his teammates voice a 
comparable opinion. 

Mike is a graduate of Lebanon Catholic 
High School. He transferred to Lebanon 
Valley last year from Notre Dame Uni- 
versity. Academically, Mike is a pre 
medical student. 


Young Republican Club 
Attends Dr. Judd Rally 

During the past week the Young Repub- 
lican Club attended the dinner and speech 
of Dr. Walter Judd, M.D., Medical Mis- 
sionary, former congressman, and now 
missionary at large. After the address the 
members had the opportunity to speak to 
him. The acting chairman of the club is 
Malcolm Lazin. 

The newly organized club had its con- 
stitution approved at the last council 
meeting. Its twenty-five members pro- 
pose to promote political awareness on 
campus and to bring outstanding Repub- 
licans to LVC. 

The club has already made plans for 
the coming year. The Honorable John C. 
Kunkel, Congressman for the 16th Con- 
gressional District, will issue the kick-off 
speech in the middle of November. Fol- 
lowing this date numerous speakers, films, 
and discusssions on county, state, and na 
tional levels will be presented. New 
members and visitors will always be wel 

ZJke Qreelc Corner 

Parents, friends and alumni are all in- 
vited to attend the Kappa Lambda Nu 
open house, which will take place in the 
Clio room immediately following the 
game. Clio's display, as listed in the foot- 
ball program, has been changed. Their 
new commemoration of Homecoming Day 
will be found in front of Mary Green 

Cheering kits are again being sold at 
the entrance of the football field by the 
members of Delta Lambda Sigma. Del- 
phian members also welcome everyone to 
their open house in the Delphian room in 
Mary Green Hall following the football 

The Knights of the Valley have exten- 
sive plans for Homecoming Day. Their 
house will be open from 4-6 p.m. for cele- 
bration after the game. Refreshments will 
be served. Later in the evening the 
Knights Alumni Dinner will be held at the 
Palmyra Legion. 

Phi Lambda Sigma has also planned 
an alumni open house after the game 
with Moravian College. Everyone is in- 
vited to join them for celebration in 
Keister Hall. 

This year Philo is sponsoring the Spirit 
Bus to all home and away football games. 
Subscriptions were primarily sold to 
freshmen, who otherwise would be with- 
out transportation. This was done in an 
endeavor to create more Valley spirit at 
all football games. It has been successful 
thus far, and the members of Phi Lambda 
Sigma hope that the Spirit Bus will be 
continued during future years. 

After the game on Saturday Kappa 
Lambda Sigma will hold an open house 
in the Kalo room in the basement of 
Keister Hall. Everyone is invited. 

Kalo also has other big plans for Sat 
urday. There will be a welcoming sign 
on campus and a spirit sign at the game. 
As a first this year they plan to present 
an annual trophy to the outstanding senior 
football player. He will be selected by 
Kalo, the Dean of Men, and the coach, 
not only for his superior playing, but also 
for his good sportmanship and spirit. 

On Monday evening, October 28, 1963, 
at 8:00 p.m., the Delta Alpha Chapter of 
Sigma Alpha Iota will sponsor a lecture 
recital by Dr. Dorothea Persichetti, wife 
of composer Dr. Vincent Persichetti. Dr. 
Persichetti will speak on the topic of 
modern music and will include such com 
posers as Hindemith and Lucas Foss. 

Dr. Persichetti is currently an instructor 
at the Philadelphia Conservatory of Music 
She is noted for her performance of her 
husband's piano music and for the duo 
piano recitals which she gives with him. 

Mike Kildee 

A newcomer to LVC football, Mike sat 
out his year of ineligibility as a transfer 
student last fall, and he now comprises a 
half of the senior representation on the 
squad. Mike is a tackle, and has done a 
commendable job of solidifying the line. 
He expresses a confident attitude con- 
cerning Lebanon Valley's remaining 
games: "We're looking forward to a great 
deal of improvement, now that we have 
a few games behind us. I'm confident that 
with the return of some of the fellows 
who were out with injuries we can get 
back on our feet and finish near the top." 

Although there is a numerical shortage 
of seniors on the squad, there is no lack 
°f team spirit, aggressive determination, 
and good sportsmanship among Valley's 

It now remains up to the spectators and 
classmates of the team to cheer them on 
to victory and to give them our best sup- 

Band Members Plan 
Half-Time Highlights 

Homecoming, October 26, marks the 1963 debut of the Lebanon 
Valley College Blue and White Marching Band. Under the direction of 
Drum Major Gary Grimm, seventy band members along with majorettes 
and color guard units, will spark the LVC home field for four games this 


The Blue and White will march down 
the field in the "floating LV" to the thrill- 
ing sound of Them Basses for the pre- 
game show. After a salute to both the 
home stands and the visitors, the band 
will be led by Student Conductor James 
Huey in our National Anthem. 

The half-time show is a Salute to 
Sousa, the greatest of all march com- 
posers. As announcer Steve Nolt de- 
scribes the historical accounts of Sousa's 
marches, the band will play his stirring 
music and form those figures which sym- 
bolically represent America's freedom— 
the Capitol Building, the Liberty Bell, the 
Crown of Freedom and Old Glory. The 
Blue and White Band will march away, 
leaving the form of Old Glory still before 
the eyes of the spectators. The band will 
then pay tribute to the 1963 Homecom- 
ing Queen playing Pomp and Circum- 
stance while in the formation of a crown 
for our Queen. 

Under the leadership of drillmaster 
John Hutchcroft, head majorette Sandy 
Beltz, and head color guard Leslie Gard- 
ner, the marching units have prepared 
each drill for this season with precision 
and accuracy. New drills and forma- 
tions combined with those used in previ- 

ous seasons will be used in the coming 
half-time shows. The band will continue 
to use favorite music such as On, Wis 
cousin and Them Basses and will also 
play new marches such as the Blue 
Heights March and Barnum and Bailey'

College Develops Plans 
For Coming Centennial 

Many of the basic plans for the cele- 
bration of the Centennial of Lebanon Val- 
ley College in 1966 are underway. The 
various subcommittees have been meet- 
ing regularly and making plans which will 
be presented to the main committee at 
their meeting the beginning of November. 
There are student representatives on each 
of the subcommittees at the present time. 
As plans become more clearly outlined it 
is planned that more use will be made of 
greater numbers of students on various 

February 22, 1966, will be the opening 
of the Centennial celebration which will 
continue throughout the year until Decem- 
ber 1. It has been decided to make the 
1966 Founders' Day chapel service coin- 
cide with the opening of the celebration. 
President Frederic K. Miller will be the 
speaker at that service. 

The First Symposium with the theme 
"The Church in Education" will be held 
during the first week in March, along 
with Religious Emphasis Week. As usual, 
students will assume the responsibility 
of planning the week's activities. 

May 7, 1966, will be observed as the 
one hundredth anniversary of the first day 
of classes. It will also commemorate the 
meeting of the East Pennsylvania Confer- 
ence of the Evangelical United Brethren 
Church at which time South Hall was 
presented to them by the town of Ann- 
ville for use as a college. The annual 
May Day program will be held also on 
that date.

several articles. The first, entitled "Gov- 
ernor Fletcher's Recall," appears in the 
current issue of the William and Mary

Dr. Struble Travels Extensively 

lAJitk ZJIte faculty, 

By Gail Rice 

After spending the early part of his summer teaching both here and 
in Harrisburg, Dr. Struble and his wife went to the west coast. They first 
stopped in Cleveland where they visited a daughter and Dr. Struble attend- 
ed a Shakespeare festival. Next, Dr. and Mrs. Struble traveled to Toronto, 
where they then took the Canadian Pacific Railroad to the west Pacific 
coast. Stop-overs were made in Banff, Lake Louise, Vancouver, and 

From Victoria the Strubles went by 
boat to Seattle, where they visited the 
World's Fair and found it "still going 
strong." They then went on to Eugene, 
Oregon, where they visited their son who 
is in the mathematics department of the 
University of Oregon. 

After this, side trips were made to 
Ashland, Oregon, where Dr. Struble at- 
tended another Shakespeare festival, and 
to San Francisco, which Dr. Struble found 
to be the coldest part of their trip. 

Then the Strubles started home, stop- 
ping for a time in Montana, where they 
spent some time on a ranch owned by one 
of Mrs. Struble's nephews. Commenting 
on the trip, Dr. Struble says he talked 
with many interesting people and acquired 
a much better understanding of the 
Canadian people. 

At the end of August, Dr. Struble took 
another trip, this time to New York, 
where he attended the Congress of the 
International Federation for Modern 
Languages and Literatures. This was the 
first time that this congress, which meets 
every three years, has met in the Western 
Hemisphere. Three years ago Dr. Stru- 
ble attended the conference when it met 
in Liege, Belgium, where the organiza- 
tion has its headquarters. At that time 
he read a paper on the symbolism in the 
language of science. 

This year's congress was the guest of 
New York University. All the members 
were housed in a newly completed dormi- 
tory in Greenwich Village. Representa- 
tives from thirty countries, several of 
which are behind the Iron Curtin, at- 

The theme of the meeting was literary 
criticism. The Congress examined the 
new type of literary criticism which con- 
tends that the biographical background of 
an author is not important to his works; 
rather, a work should be examined sim- 
ply as a piece of writing. Dr. Struble 
feels that, from the papers presented, this 
idea was not generally accepted by the 
representatives, who seemed to believe 
that emphasis must always be placed on 
the social milieu of the author in order to 
properly evaluate his works. 

However, Dr. Struble did not spend 
all of his time at metings. He spent some 
time exploring Greenwich Village which 
he found much changed since the last 
time he saw it several years ago. Flower 
gardens, new parks, and building projects 
have replaced much of the shabbiness and 
have made the Village a charming place. 
There he visited the annual sidewalk show 
of paintings by artists in the Village. 

He also attended museums and French 
movies, and visited Chinatown, where he 
attended Buddist temple services. Dr. 
Struble found the services quite interest- 
ing, but confesses he was "not converted." 
He feels that after having been to both 
Chinatown in New York and San Fran- 
cisco's Chinatown, he prefers that in New 
York. He feels Chinatown in New York 
is more authentic; it looks lived in. San 
Francisco's Chinatown is like a "big 
Chinese bazaar" which caters to tourists. 
Dr. Struble found, upon examining the 
Chinese souvenirs, that some of these 
were fake — marked "made in Japan." 

Valley Sponsors Annual 
Church Vocations Week 

Dr. Harley E. Hiller, executive secre- 
tary of the Board of Pensions of the 
Evangelical United Brethren Church, and 
Miss Harriet F. Miller, assistant professor 
of Christian Education of United Theo- 
logical Seminary, Dayton, Ohio, were on 
the LVC campus Monday and Tuesday 
of this past week for Church Vocations 

Dr. Hiller and Miss Miller were avail- 
able for interviews concerning the possi- 
bilities and types of church vocations 
while they were on campus. 

Artist Will Display 
Chinese Brushwork 

An exhibition of the Chinese brush 
works of Mrs. Lois Wethington, Annville, 
R. D. 1, will be displayed in the Carnegie 
Lounge, Lebanon Valley College, until 
Wednesday, October 30. This is the 
third of ten art exhibits scheduled for the 
Carnegie Lounge this year. 

The wife of Dr. L. Elbert Wethington, 
associate professor of religion at Leba- 
non Valley College, and the daughter of 
an LVC alumnus, the Rev. Harry P. 
Ruppenthat, Mrs. Wethington became 
interested in the Oriental art form while 
she and her husband were Methodist mis- 
sionaries to the Philippine Islands. Dr. 
Wethington was profesor of theology and 
chairman of the area of Christian doctrine 
at the Union Theological Seminary, 

She began her study of Chinese brush 
techniques with Professor Chen Bing Sun 
in Manila. Later, she studied for a short 
time in Hong Kong with Mme. Alice 
Chen, noted Chinese artist, teacher and 

Mrs. Wethington's last exhibition was 
held at Duke University this past sum- 

New African Students 
Plan Musical Careers 

Recently LVC welcomed two young newcomers to its campus. These 
are Mamie Kamara and Lucy Le Fevre of Sierra Leone, Africa. The two 
girls have similar reasons for coming to this country. Both wish to study 
music education so that they can return to teach it in their own country. 
When asked why they chose LVC as the place to prepare for their future 
profession, their replies were somewhat different. Mamie received a schol- 
arship for four years of study, but Lucy replied that her uncle had attended 
the college and that she was impressed by his work in Sierra Leone. 
Neither of the girls had ever travelled 

La Vie Inquires 

before coming to the United States to at- 
tend college, and both lived at the Hart- 
ford School for girls in Sierra Leone. 

Arriving on campus at the same time, 
September 27, the girls reflected on their 
trip as frightful when the plane first left 
the ground, but very enjoyable and in- 
teresting after they became used to travel- 
ling this way. When asked what their 
first statements were upon reaching the 
ground, Mamie replied, "Thank Goodness 
I'm down! while Lucy calmly said, "We 
have arrived in America without realizing 
it." Questioned on what they missed 
most about home, both mentioned that 
they missed the food, their families, and 
their boy friends — not necessarily in that 

What do they like best at LVC? The 
friendliness of the students and professors. 
And what do they like least? While 
Mamie said she disliked the weather be- 
cause it is making her skin dry, Lucy 
cheerfully replied, "Nothing!" 

The food, however, is not wholly to 
their liking. Lucy says this is because the 
preparation of it is so different to the 
methods she is used to. Mamie admits 
that she is very fond of hamburger, hot 
dogs and chicken, but that she misses 
her rice and stew that she ate so often 
at home. 

The weather is one of the biggest dif- 
ferences that the girls have noticed be- 
tween their native country and the United 

States. "It was fine at first," Mamie says, 
but thinks that it is too cold now. Lucy 
adds that there is a great contrast because 
the average temperature in Sierra Leone 
ranges from 80 to 85 degrees. 

Basically they both like their studies 
and find them to be both challenging and 
interesting. They especially like their 
music courses and Lucy finds French 
very enjoyable. 

Mamie and Lucy like it here very 
much so far, but they say they were 
warned about two things before they 
came to the United States. The first of 
these concerned the cold winters and the 
second the fact that they would get a lot 
of potatoes to eat. They heard nothing 
bad about America before they came be- 
cause many of their teachers at the Har- 
ford school are Americans, but Lucy read 
in the African newspapers about our "un- 
fair treatment of Negroes in the south." 

Both girls closed the interview with 
two statments that reveal their optimistic 
philosophy of life. First they admitted 
that they love to do the twist. Second, 
when asked why they giggle so much, 
Mamie said, "There is always something 
funny and once I get started I can't stop!" 
Lucy is equally as positive in her view of 
life. She says, "Life is not a hard thing, 
and I find it very enjoyable." By being 
cheerful and not carrying a gloomy face, 
she hopes to help other people. 

Exchange students Lucy Le Fevre and Mamie Kamara find time to relax from 
rigorous study schedule to pose for La Vie camera. 

Faculty Voices Ideas 
On Liberal Standing 

By Carol Mickey 

When a student says that Lebanon Valley College is a liberal arts 
college rather than a teachers' or professional college, he rarely thinks 
about what he is saying. 

But recently there has been quite a discussion among some students 
concerning Valley's standing as a liberal arts college. Some education 
students believe they should have more education courses or a better 
student teaching program which would enable them to learn better how 
our public schools are run at first hand. Others think LVC offers too 
many professional courses. 

Here La Vie Inquires attempts to dis- 
cover the feelings of various members of 
the faculty and administration concerning 
the issue, and to hear their standing as to 
LVC's position as a liberal arts college, 
and the introduction of more professional 
courses to the curriculum. 

Therefore, La Vie Inquires, "Should 
LVC retain its standing as a liberal arts 
college, or should it adopt more voca- 
tional and professional courses?" 

Mrs. June E. 
Herr, Assistant 
Professor of Ele- 
mentary Education: 
"LVC should retain 
its standing as a 
liberal arts college. 
The major liberal 
arts course offer- 
ings combined with 
those professional 
courses which are 
.necessary to equip students with the 
skills needed for effective teaching pro- 
vide a desirable under-graduate program 
for prospective teachers. 

"The breadth of knowledge and under- 
standing acquired in the liberal arts studies 
is essential for quality teaching in the ele- 
mentary school." 

Dr. George G. Struble, Professor of 
English and Chairman of the Department 
of English: "The old battle between the 
vocationalists and the humanists has been 
going on for many decades, and it will 
not be settled in our time. Certainly we 
who are up to our pedagogical necks in 
teacher preparation are in no position to 
talk against professional training. But 
even while we grant that preparation for 
one's life-work should be one of the aims 
of a liberal-arts college, we would insist 
that it is not the only aim. Students must 
be prepared to live as well as to earn a 
living; they will be not only wage-earners 
but also mothers and fathers, citizens, 
friends and neighbors. A scientist should 
be more than a competent technician, 
a musician something more than a 
brilliant virtuoso, and a profesor of Eng- 
lish something more than an authority on 
medieval symbolism. The liberal arts col- 
lege stands for the education of the whole 
man and the whole woman. The aim 
should be intellectual and emotional ful- 
fillment of one's highest potentialities: 
the discriminating mind and the under- 
standing heart." 

Dr. Gilbert D. McKlveen, Professor of 
Education and Chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Education: "I definitely believe 
we should retain the standards of a liberal 
arts college. I am of the opinion that 
there is a place for an institution of higher 
learning such as Lebanon Valley; that is 
a church related school. 

"Speaking for the Department of Edu- 
cation I was pleased when the State did 
not raise the required hours for teacher 
certification in the area of professional 
courses. We here at Valley have gone 
along with the idea most emphatically by: 

1. Reducing the hours we did have for 
students and putting them down to a very- 
basic minimum. Students can secure their 
necessary 18 hours in professional courses 
and that is just about it. 

2. Eliminating a major in Education. 
This was done a number of years ago and 
I believe was a good move to strengthen 
Valley in the area of the Liberal Arts. 

"I do, however, agree with the Conant 
report that much should and could be 
done with the Student Teaching Program. 
Tt needs strengthening. This should be 
done with the addition of time and hours 
for our students in the public schools. It 
should not be done by increasing the 
number of professional courses to be 

40th \ 


Dr. Elizabeth M. Geffen, Associate 
Professor of History: "The form of the 
question assumes that LVC presently 
gives some vocational and professional 
courses which are different from liberal 
arts courses. Wherein the essential differ- 
ence lies in all cases is not clear to me. 
Certainly in my discipline, history, we 
give courses which are addressed both to 
students interested in history for its gen- 
eral cultural value and to students prepar- 
ing for various professions, such as law 
and teaching. In all courses at the col- 
lege level I believe the major purpose of 
both teacher and student should be the 
increasing of the individual's capacity, in 
both mind and spirit, to live meaningfully 
and fully as a human being. Vocational 
competence is only a part of human exist- 
ence, a part devoid of significance if not 
comprehended in a framework of values. 
Certainly, no human being lives in a vac- 
uum, vocational or otherwise, but in a 
world of rapid and constantly accelerating 
change. The human situation requires of 
the individual a mind trained to think and 
a spirit capable of feeling, mind and spirit 
harmonized, humanized, "liberalized," set 
free, to cope with the new world of the 
Atomic Age. I would like LVC to con- 
tinue its vital contributions to the tasks of 
learning in order to set men free." 

The Reverend Bruce C. Souders, Direc- 
tor of Public Relations: "I most certainly 
agree that Lebanon Valley College should 
retain its standing as a liberal arts college. 
In fact, I would go beyond this and say 
that we should strengthen our position as 
a liberal arts college (The word "retain" is 
too suggestive of standing still in the 
quagmire of status quo). This is not to 
say that vocational and professional 
schools serve no good purpose. Neither 
does it suggest academic snobbishness on 
the part of the liberal arts colleges (Our 
contemporary culture needs not a hier- 
archy in its educational system with liberal 
arts at the top and vocational schools at 
the bottom, but a partnership of educa- 
tional traditions, each tradition contribut- 
ing its best while at the same time check- 
ing the abuses of the other). 

"The contribution of the liberal arts 
tradition in an age dominated by scientific 
and technical discoveries can be summed 
up in the word "sensitivity." The liberal 
arts tradition must help us to become 
sensitive to the needs of others, so that 
we will use our scientific discoveries for 
humane purposes. It must help us to be- 
come sensitive to the presence of beauty, 
both in nature and in the artistic creations 
of man. It must help us to become sensi- 
tive to the implications of man's search 
for meaning. It must help us to become 
sensitive to the best that has been thought 
by men in all ages and in all cultures. As 
a liberal arts college, Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege must attempt to arouse such sensi- 
tivities in its teaching and administrative 
staff as well as in its students.

Jazz Band To Present 
'63 Session In Sound 

John Hutchcroft will lead the 
Sound Session tomorrow evening at 
rangements by members of the band, 
highlight the evening. 

After opening with Ken Andersons 
arrangement of "Crazy Rhythm" the pro- 
gram will include two other arrangements 
by Ken: "Laura" featuring Don Reed on 
French Horn and "The Prologue from 
West Side Story." The program will also 
include Count Basie's arrangements of 
"Spanky" and "Blues Before and Because 
of." Eleven big band numbers will be 
interspersed with some combo numbers. 
These will include "My Funny Valentine," 
featuring Tom Schwalm on piano, and 
"Blue Rondo a la Turk," featuring John 
Hutchcroft on piano accompanied by bass, 
drum and saxophone. The band will also 
play "I Remember Clifford," which was 
written by Benny Golsen as a tribute to 
Clifford Brown, a promising young trum- 
pet player who was killed in an automo- 
bile accident. This selection features Ken 
Anderson on the vibraphone. 

This year's jazz band sections include 
Dick Hiler, Art Cohen, Jim Code and 
Jim Alhouse on trumpet; Don Reed, Bill 
Grove, Bob Gregory and Jack Schwalm 
on trombone; Louis DAugustine, Jim 
Klinedinst, Ken Anderson, Ron Trayer 
and Joe Foster on saxophone; Robert 
Goodling on tuba; Tom Schwalm on pi- 
ano; Bob Rhine on bass; and Kip Swei- 
gart on drums. 

In an interview with La Vie, John stat- 
ed that the men have rehearsed long and 
hard to present a session in sound from 
swing to progressive jazz and he feels that 
any lack in individual solo material is 
more than made up for by the superb 
improvement in sound and blend. 

This will be John's first experience in 
conducting a big band. He has had pre- 
vious experience conducting small com- 
bos and has played piano with the Sin- 
fonia jazz band for the past two years. 
John is planning to get his masters and 
doctorate in music from either Michigan 
°r Eastman after which he plans to do 
instrumental teaching at the college level.

Budapest Quartet Is 
First Artist Series 

The Budapest String Quartet, the first program of the 1963-64 
Artist Series, will appear at Engle Hall on November 7 at 8 p.m. The 
group originally included three Hungarian and one Dutch musician and 
had its headquarters in Budapest. Later, one by one, the original mem- 
bers were replaced by musicians from Russia until, in the 1930's, the 
Quartet's membership was constituted as it is today. Thus it happened 
that a group which bears the name of the Hungarian capital is made up 
of four musicians who were born in Russia. 

Only two Russian cities are represented 
in the quartet: loseph Roismann, violin- 
ist, and Boris Kroyt, violist, are from 
Odessa; Alexander Schneider, violinist, 
and his brother, Mischa Schneider, 'cell- 
ist, are from Vilna. All four are now 
American citizens and live either in Wash- 
ington, D.C. or New York City. 

The string quartet is traditionally con- 
sidered the most perfect of instrumental 
ensembles and the members of the Buda- 
pest have long held their positions as the 
unchallenged masters of this subtle and 
beautiful art. The Budapest is known all 
over the world for its performances of 
classical, romantic and modern chamber 
music but above all for its interpretations 
of Beethoven. The "Budapesters" are fa- 
mous for their complete cycle of Beetho- 
ven quartets. However, their Mozart 
Quartets have also been a specialty of the 
group and their Schubert performances 
are regarded as landmarks. The critics' 
praise has also been bestowed on a host 
of other interpretations ranging from 
Haydn and Brahms to composers of more 
recent vintage. 

In addition to their regular tours of the 
North American continent, the Quartet 
has been acclaimed on several world 
tours. The second of two highly success- 
ful South American tours took place in 
1962. On occasional old home visits the 
Quartet maintains its legendary fame in 
its native Europe and enthusiastic ac- 
claim has always been received on their 
Far East tours. 

The popularity of their recordings, in 
number and in sales, has amazed experts 
in the recording field where chamber mu- 
sic is not normally considered to be in the 
best-selling category. Over two million 
Budapest recordings have been sold. 

In addition to their continuing concert 
successes and their long series of fine 
recordings, the Budapest recently achiev- 
ed new laurels in the television medium. 
They made their successful debut in 1957 
and since then have been featured on va- 
rious television programs, notably the dis- 
tinguished new Festival of Performing 
Arts series. 

Scholarship Available 
For College Senior Girls 

Two national scholarships for college 
senior girls are offered for 1964-65 by the 
Katharine Gibbs School. These awards 
were established in 1935 as a memorial to 
Mrs. Katharine M. Gibbs, founder and 
first president of the School. 

Each scholarship consists of full tuition 
($985) for the secretarial training course, 
plus an additional cash award of $500, 
totaling $1,485. The winners may select 
any one of the four Gibbs schools for 
their training — Boston, New York, Mont- 
clair or Providence. 

Winners are chosen by the Scholarship 
Committee on the basis of college aca- 
demic record, personal and character 
qualifications, financial need and poten- 
tialities for success in business. 

Each college or university may recom- 
mend two candidates and each candidate 
must have this official endorsement. Stu- 
dents who may be interested in competing 
for one of these Katharine Gibbs awards 
may obtain full information from the 
college placement bureau. 

A. Fehr Receives Award 
For 'Automation' Essay 

Alex J. Fehr, assistant professor of 
political science at Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, has been awarded the second-place 
prize of $1,000 by the Connecticut Mu- 
tual Life Insurance Company for his es- 
say, "Automation — A Challenge to 
America's Social Wisdom." 

The company awarded five prizes in 
a nationwide contest on the general 
theme, "Preserving the Individual in an 
Age of Automation." The competition 
attracted close to 3,000 entrants. 

Professor Fehr is currently on a one 
year sabbatical leave from LVC to con- 
tinue his doctoral studies at Syracuse 
University. An alumnus of LVC with a 
M.A. degree from Columbia University, 
he has been a member of the faculty 
at his alma mater since 1951.

The Importance 
Of Being Big 

There is no denying the fact that we are living in a world of me- 
chanized "bigness." The big corporations, big industrialized plants, and 
big unions are a symbol of our world today. Our large cities attract more 
persons each year and undoubtedly carry more weight in the field of 
culture, industry and politics than does the small "average" American 
community. The government, that gigantic "monster" and regulator of 
our laws and policies, is only another example of the importance and 
prestige reflected in and connected with size. And, of course, the prime 
example of bigness and status for the younger generations — the University. 
With all this emphasis on size and acceptance, how and why does the 
small liberal arts college flourish? Why do students come to a small, 
relatively unknown, school which can only boast an enrollment either 
slightly over, and usually under, one thousand? Why go to a college 
when the expected question after you state the name of your alma mater 
is usually, "where is that?" 

Many of the students at Lebanon Valley College, a small liberal 
arts college, are here because they want to learn. Perhaps they feel that 
this can best be accomplished in an atmosphere where they know the 
professor's name and can feel free to question him in or after class, where 
they can go to the professor for individual help and attention, and where 
the number they write on their test paper is usually considerably below 
100. On the campus of a small liberal arts college the administrators are 
known and can be approached by the undergraduate student and questions 
and suggestions can be made concerning the administrative policy of the 
institution. Perhaps this feeling of being more than number 7869 appeals 
to many students. 

Many students attend a small liberal arts college because they enjoy 
the closer relationships that can be established on a smaller campus. 
The term "friendly campus" is often over-used; however, it dos describe 
an atmosphere that is absent and unheard of on the University level. 
Knowing the presidents of the various social organizations on campus, 
the editor of the yearbook and the homecoming queen gives many students 
a sense of personal involvement with the college community. While a 
small college offers a greater majority of its enrollment the opportunity 
to hold specific offices and positions, even the student who holds no such 
position can feel that he is still contributing an important part in the wel- 
fare of the campus as a whole by being chairman of a committee or by 
simply belonging to an organization. Perhaps this feeling of belonging 
appeals to many students. 

Many students attend a liberal arts college simply because they feel 
they will gain more by taking general courses in many departments rather 
than concentrating in only one subject area. A well-rounded schedule of 
academic classes leads to a well-rounded person. Perhaps the idea of the 
education of the whole individual appeals to many students. 

Size is not the answer. Although we must have the large university 
for the benefit of the majority of college students today, we must not de- 
emphasize the importance of the liberal arts college. In considering the 
varied aspects of higher education, we find that the small college is big 
in many ways. (JKR) 

Calendar Develops 
Through The Years 

Did you know that you're more than two-and-one-half hours ahead 
of yourself? It's a fact! The calendar sitting on your desk, though more 
accurate than any other calendar in history, exceeds the solar year by 26 
seconds. And since it's been in existence since 1582, we're now approxi- 
mately 2.75 hours ahead of the times 

While this fact may provide you with 
a novel excuse the next time you're late 
for an appointment or don't get to class 
on time, it won't have any earth-shaking 
significance until the year 4905 comes 
along. Then the error will amount to 
one day's time. 

Why has mankind never been able to 
perfect the calendar? Simply because it's 
so difficult to divide the true solar year 
(365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 
seconds) into workable units, though we've 
been trying for over 6000 years. 

The Egyptians, after carefully studying 
the changes of seasons in conjunction with 
the flooding of the Nile, produced the 
earliest calendar on record, one dated 
4241 B.C. It set up 12 months of thirty 
days each and added five days at the end 
of the year for a total of 365 days. The 
year was divided into three seasons of 
four months each, called Flood Time, 
Seed Time and Harvest Time. This 
Egyptian calendar remained the most ac- 
curate until the middle of the 16th cen- 

Today's kitchen calendars contain such 
things as recipes, household hints, and 
contest entry blanks — yet the idea of hav- 
ing a calendar show more than just the 
date goes back at least to early Aztec 
civilization. The famous 20-ton Aztec 
calendar stone, discovered in the 16th cen- 

tury, is covered with beautifully carved 
symbols telling of the world's creation 
and destruction. Three feet thick and 12 
feet in diameter, the stone is a surprising- 
ly accurate chronological table — but it is 
hardly a handy calendar. 

Ancient Babylonian calendars had 13 
months. Based on the moon, this far- 
from-accurate calendar listed 29 or 30 
days for each month. 

The calendars of the ancient Greek city 
states were similar to the Babylonian one. 
Some had 13 months, usually repeating 
the sixth or twelfth month. The most 
famous early Greek calendar had only 
354 days, but added three extra months 
every eight years to make things come 
out even. 

The Romans left their calendar-keeping 
duties in the hands of the high priest who 
performed these chores poorly. By 
Julius Caesar's time, the summer months 
came in the spring. Caesar corrected 
this situation in 46 B. C. in the Julian 
Calendar. He adopted the plan of the 
Alexandrian astronomer Sosigenes — a 365 
day year, with one day added every 
fourth, or "leap," year. 

Due to some slight errors in Caesar's 
calendar, Pope Gregory XIII tried to 
correct the situation. His corrections re- 
sulted in our present Gregorian calendar. 

Today business concerns give away in-

JfetterA 7Jo J£a Vie 

To the Editor of La Vie: 

Once again the elements of irresponsi- 
bility on this campus have risen behind 
the standard of petty vandalism in an at- 
tempt to mar the excellent "town-and- 
gown" relationships which have been so 
painstakingly built up here over the years. 

On Sunday night a valuable stock rac- 
ing car was stolen from the backyard of 
one of Annville's citizens, and placed in 
front of the college dining hall. Little 
can be said about such an undertaking 
except that it was childish, foolish, and 
smacked strongly of juvenile delinquency. 

Why was this car stolen? Was it be- 
cause a group of immature underclass- 
men felt the need for a little excitement 
and decided to prey on one of the town's 
innocent defenseless citizens as a means 
of fulfilling this need? Was it because 
the car couldn't possibly have looked 
worse in front of the dining hall than it 
did in the yard from which it was stolen? 
Was it because the men of this college 
feel some aggressive tendency toward the 
people of the town and decided to make 
this feeling manifest? Or was it perhaps 
because it was a prank of the first order 
just waiting to be done? 

There is no way in which we can de- 
termine the exact cause of this escapade, 
but there can be no doubt of its repre- 
hensibility. Certainly somewhere there 
must be a flaw in our educational ideals 
and practices if such vandalism as this is 
not checked immediately by the sense of 
decency and fair play being instilled in 
us along with our growing maturity. 

The Bible says: "Thou shalt not steal." 
How can it be that in a Christian college 
such an action as the stealing of a car 
can be, if not condoned, at least not con- 
demned by a large part of the student 
body? Certainly this question must weigh 
heavily on all of our minds. Perhaps it 
is time for us to reevaluate ourselves and 
to discover just what, if any, our feelings 
about such irresponsibility are. Perhaps 
that general moral degeneracy, so widely 
considered a part of the contemporary 
American scene, has at last reached our 
pristine campus. Certainly it is time for 
a reawakening of responsibility among our 
student body. Certainly we must be ready 
to point the long bony finger of condem- 
nation at those who would perpetrate such 
deeds as this. 

One last possibility is that the vandals 
were actually motivated by aesthetic con- 
siderations. Perhaps they were only in- 
terested in removing a major eyesore from 
one of Annville's lovely streets.

Honor ? 

In the last issue of La Vie this editor discussed the failure of stu- 
dents to show interest in and to accept responsibility for the formation of 
college policy. A more important problem, however, is the obvious lack 
of appreciation of the attempts of the fraternities and sororities to improve 
and enhance life on this campus. 

On the Saturday evening of Homecoming Weekend the megaphone 
displayed by Kalo to welcome our visitors was burned. It had been one 
of several exhibits, all of which promoted the image of the friendliness of 
this campus and pepped up the spirit of the day. Observers believe that 
someone walked by and tossed a lighted match or cigarette into the mass 
of kleenex and chicken wire. Its sudden burst into flames drew their at- 
tention, whereupon they spotted a figure leaving the scene. By stretching 
the imagination considerably, one could call this incident an accident. 
However, the destruction of the arch built by members of Delphian the 
following night was not. 

Delphian's arch had been at the top of the steps in front of Keister 
Hall that afternoon. The women who had constructed it thought that 
it had been taken into the gym to be stored, as had been planned. During 
supper the arch was burned without their permission in the center of 
campus. The Knights' shield had been stolen and gray paint had been 
smeared on the sign above it the preceding weekend. Perhaps this was 
a pre-Halloween prank performed by the townsfolk, but the fact that the 
shield had hung unmolested over the summer tends to shed some doubt 
on this theory. Last spring, the toilets in the basement of Keister Hall 
were stuffed, resulting in their overflow and the subsequent damage of 
rugs in Kalo's and Philo's rooms. 

It is not possible to condemn the destruction and stealing of the prop- 
erty of others too much. Acts such as these prove nothing except the 
inconsiderateness and unfairness of those who participate. They serve 
only to foster distrust and discord. 

Why is there so much disregard for the feelings and efforts of others, 
particularly those of the social societies? Whether or not one will admit 
it, these organizations are primarily responsible for the social life of this 
college, if it can be said to have any at all. One may feel that this campus 
is dull now, but just wait until the pile of academic pressures has had more 
time to grow. Imagine what it would be like here without the activities 
these organizations sponsor and promote: SCA would not have to leave 
campus in order to have a retreat. The social societies perform an im- 
portant service for the freshman, especially, because he is not permitted 
to have a car with which to escape the cultural atmosphere of Annville. 
Therefore, every student owes these organizations some respect and con- 
sideration, even if his attitudes toward fraternities and sororities in general 
prevents him from expressing his appreciation by supporting their activities. 

One wonders whether student attitudes might not be a reflection of 
the administration's policy of the disparagement and tight control of the 
social societies. Perhaps if there were not so much fear that this college 
might lose its academic status, these organizations might have 
more opportunities to liven the student morale. The sudden ban 
on outside advertising caused Kalo many economic problems 
when they brought The Brothers Four on campus two years ago. This 
project was planned for the benefit of everyone in the face of the 
obvious barriers to making money. It seems, also, that the fraterni- 
ties must constantly be using their energies to prove themselves in- 
nocent or they are declared guilty. Over the summer the administration 
removed thirteen metal chairs which were clearly labeled from the Knights' 
House without leaving either an explanation or a receipt. After locating 
them, the Knights had to dig up a receipt of purchase made in 1955 from 
the college in order to receive permission to keep them. Why was all 
this necessary? Is honor now obsolete? The greater freedom granted 
fraternities at schools such as Princeton and Yale has not resulted in the 
loss of their academic prestige. This college exists to promote learning, 
but must it do so at the expense of blocking creativity and initiative? If 
the social societies were shown more appreciation and confidence, and 
if pressures were lessened, perhaps this college would not be referred to 
as one with a suitcase campus. (NLB)

Halloween Season Spurs Pranks And Competition 























Dr. Faber entered Saylor Hall on October 30 expecting to teach her Honors 
Humanities class. The classroom was illuminated by a sole candle and the students 
included two witches, a devil, a sailor, a Keystone Kop, a sheet-covered ghost with 
a laurel wreath and a pipe, an overly-developed young wench, a Chinaman and other 
assorted species of creatures. After bobbing for apples, the masks were removed 
and a semblance of normality returned to the room. The Honors students then got 
down to their classwork. 

LVC Faculty Lists 
Various Activities 

Faculty members find themselves in- 
volved in many off-campus activities this 
year. Dr. Howard A. Neidig, professor 
and chairman of the department of 
chemistry, attended a meeting on No- 
vember 5, of the editorial advisory board 
for the magazine, Chemistry, published by 
the American Chemical Society. The 
purpose of the meeting, held at the ACS 
headquarters in Washington, was to dis- 
cuss plans to change the format and con- 
tent of the publication in order to in- 
clude academic papers by students. 

Dr. Elizabeth M. Geffen, associate pro- 
fessor of history, addressed the local area 
chapter of the American Association of 
University Women on the subject of "Edu- 
cation in South America" in Carnegie 
Lounge, November 4. Dr. Geffen report- 
ed the first-hand observations made dur- 
ing a five-week seminar in South Ameri- 
can education conducted by the Compara- 
tive Education Society and the Commis- 
sion on International Relations in Educa- 
tion of Phi Delta Kappa from August 11 
to September 15. 

Dr. George G. Struble, professor and 
chairman of the department of English, 
addressed the Berks County Teachers 
Institute in Hamburg on November 1. 
His topic was "Preparation in English of 
the College-Bound Student." 

Dr. Gilbert D. McKlveen, professor 
and chairman of the department of edu- 
cation, attended the meeting of the Penn- 
sylvania Learning Resources Association 
Conference in Harrisburg, October 31- 
November 2. The main speaker, Julien 
Bryan, executive director of the Interna- 
tional Film Foundation, presented some 
of his recent experiences in taking pictures 
behind the Iron Curtain. 

Dr. James O. Bemesderfer, chaplain 
and assistant professor of religion, at- 
tended the Third Annual Conference of 
the African Scholarship Program for 
American Universities at Northwestern 
University, Evanston, Illinois, on October 

Lebanon Valley's SCA 
Plans Faculty Fireside 

"Where in the World is God?" will be 
the topic for discussion at the November 
13 meeting of the Student Christian As- 
sociation. At this meeting, to be held 
in room 102 of the gym, Mr. Richard 
Magee will explore the topic in the light 
°f his Christian convictions. 

SCA also announces that a Faculty 
Fireside will be held on November 20 at 
various professor's homes. Following 
tradition, students and faculty members 
Will again meet in faculty homes for dis- 
cussion of topics of interest to many per- 

Time of the fireside will be announced 
later. Students are requested to sign-up 
°n sheets to be distributed. 

Dining Hall Committee 
Represents LV Students 

The Dining Hall Committee? What is 
that? This committee, comparatively un- 
known to many Lebanon Valley College 
students, plays an important part in co- 
ordinating students' feelings with Dining 
Hall operations — for example the food 
survey taken last spring to discover stu- 
dent likes and dislikes. Results of the 
survey have been seriously taken into 
consideration in planning this year's 

The actual Dining Hall Committee is 
composed of a male and a female rep- 
resentative from each class who meet 
periodically with Mr. Keller, faculty ad- 
visor, and Fred Eppley, head waiter, to 
discuss problems which may arise con- 
cerning food, service, dress, or procedures 
in the Dining Hall. The main function 
of the Committee is to act as a mediator 
between the student body and the Dining 
Hall staff. 

Each and every student should feel free 
to bring complaints, compliments and/or 
suggestions for improvement in the Din- 
ing Hall to any one of the following mem- 
bers of the Committee. Representing the 
senior class are Miss Julie Leid and Steve 
Hildreth; representing the junior class 
are Miss Fran Niblo and Dave Thomp- 
son; and representing the sophomore class 
are Miss Carolyn Miller and George 

A Monday morning escapade by cer- 
tain members of the student body resulted 
in the addition of a slightly used stock- 
car to the campus. The stock-car, which 
was "borrowed" from an Annville street, 
was hauled in front of the dining hall 
and greeted the bleary-eyed LVC students 
going to breakfast. By 10 p.m. the car 
had been returned. The students involved 
were assessed $35 for "damages" which 
had been sustained.

Students Present Topics 
On Chemistry Research 

Three members of the Chemistry Club 
who worked under the National Science 
Foundation Grant this past summer will 
present reports of their research to the 
club at their November 7 meeting. The 
students are Miss Patricia Zeigler, Joel 
Lantz and William Scovell. 

Miss Zeigler will discuss The Problem 
of Finding a Problem. The system de- 
cided upon was Cu(Il)aq and NH 2 CH 2 - 
CH 2 NH 2 in anhydrous methanol. Pat 
used a potentiometric method to acquire 
her data. 

Joel Lantz's study was concerned with 
the formation of various inorganic and 
metallo-organic complexes by amperome- 
tric means. The complexes that were 
chosen for study had too rapid formation 
rates to be studied at room temperature, 
but they slowed down sufficiently at dry 
ice temperature. 

Bill Scovell investigated the coulometric 
generation of chromous ions in non-aque- 
ous media. The solvents that were studied 
were DMF and acetonitrile. Some pre- 
liminary work was done in an aqueous 
solution to get some idea of the results 
that would be obtained from the R.P.E. 
and some of its inherent disadvantages. 

Sophomore girls brought in another victory for the Class of '66 during the 
events on underclassmen's day, October 25, as they won the girls' tug event. The 
annual Quittie Tug, held the following day, was won by the sophomore class — 

Dr. Joseph Tom To Give 
Annual Faculty Lecture 

The Annual Faculty Lecture in Chapel 
on November 12, will be given by C. F. 
Joseph Tom, Ph. D., assistant professor 
of economics and business administra- 
tion. His presentation will be "Go to the 

Dr. Tom received his B.A. degree from 
Hastings College, Hastings, Nebraska, and 
his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the 
University of Chicago, Illinois. As as- 
sistant professor of economics, Dr. Tom 
has been a member of the LVC faculty 
since September of 1954. 

The chapel speaker on November 19, 
will be The Rev. Bruce C. Souders, 
M.A., Director of Public Relations. His 
topic for discussion will be "Don't Fence 
Me In." 

The Rev. Mr. Souders was a graduate 
of Lebanon Valley College and at that 
time received his B.A. Degree. He then 
continued to advance his education and 
earned his B.D. Degree from United 
Theology Seminary, Dayton, Ohio, his 
M.A. Degree in English and Compara- 
tive Literature at Columbia University, in 
1953, and did graduate study at the Luth- 
eran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg. 

The Rev. Mr. Souders first joined the 
LVC faculty as an English instructor in 
1947. He then left the school to be- 
come pastor of the Neidig Memorial EUB 
Church, Oberlin, Pennsylvania in 1949. In 
September of 1957, however, he again 
joined the LVC staff and at that time was 
given his present position as director of 
public relations. 

By Next FaU . . . 

7,000 PCV's To Be Selected 

By next fall 7,000 new Peace 
Corps Volunteers will be serving 
overseas, many filling completely 
new assignments in the 48 countries 
requesting additional Volunteers. 
Applications are now being received 
from students eligible to enter train- 
ing in January and June for these 

Projects will begin training on 
a monthly basis beginning in Feb- 
ruary, although the major in-put 
will be in the summer months. 
Students who apply now will be 
notified within one month if they 
will be accepted. 

Liberal arts majors will fill most 
of the new assignments in teaching 
and community development work. 
Teacher-training courses will be in- 
cluded in the training program for 
teacher training projects. Prior 
teaching experience is not required 
for Volunteers assigned to ele- 
mentary and secondary classrooms. 

More than half of the Volun- 
teers serving overseas are engaged 
in some type of teaching. Many of 
these Volunteers did not major or 
minor in education. 

The most frequent request from 

host country governments is for 
Volunteers who can teach in the 
public schools. Government offi- 
cials are aware that no lasting 
progress can be made through tech- 
nical advancements until the popu- 
lace reaches an adequate educa- 
tional level. 

Some university-level assignments 
will require advanced degrees. The 
requirement for a secondary school 
teaching job is usually only a bach- 
elor's degree. 

Volunteers assigned to commu- 
nity development will seek to help 
rural and urban communities organ- 
ize to meet their own needs. Liberal 
arts majors with experience in youth 
club work, recreation programs, 
farming and construction are gen- 
erally assigned to these programs. 
A college degree is not required 
for all community development pro- 

A Volunteer working in this type 
program in Colombia defined the 
work as "group education through 
physical projects." Volunteers seek 
to get a community to work to-

LV Students Participate 
In Regional Convention 

Three political science majors, Henry 
Bessel, Harold Hedd and Kathleen Mc- 
Quate, and one history major, John Uh- 
rich, participated in a regional meet- 
ing of the Pennsylvania Political Science 
and Public Administration Association to 
be held at Pennsylvania Military College, 
Chester, Penna. Mr. Jerome J. Martor- 
ana, instructor in political science, accom- 
panied the above students and served 
as faculty adviser. 

The meeting convened at 3 p.m. 
on Friday, November 1 and adjourned 
at 10 p.m. An afternoon panel dis- 
cussion on Theory of State and Local 
Government dealt with the topic, "Cri- 
tique of Democratic Elitism." 

Dr. Saul K. Padover of the New 
School of Social Research spoke at 
a banquet that evening on the topic: 
"Germany Tries Democracy."

Mathematic Majors Take 
Annual Actuarial Exams 

For the past two years, Lebanon Val- 
ley College has been a testing center for 
the Sociey of Actuaries. This year the 
tests will be administered on November 
13 in conjunction with the new actuarial 
science program which has been estab- 
lished here. 

The first preliminary examinations on 
calculus, analytical geometry, trigonom- 
etry, and algebra will be taken in the 
morning by Richard London, Italo Lapi- 
oli, Milton Loyer and Robert Ludwig. 
In the afternoon the second preliminary 
examination will be taken by Russell 
Bonsall, Richard Pell, Dayle Stare and 
Phillip Kohlhaas. Also, an alumnus of 
last year's class, James Davis, now em- 
ployed by Provident Mutual Life Insur- 
ance in Philadelphia, will return to take 
this examination here. These five stu- 
dents have passed the first examination 
and are now being examined on probabil- 
ity and mathematical statistics. In addition 
to these nine students of LVC, there may 
also be students from other colleges tak- 
ing the tests. 

These examinations are beneficial to 
students in several ways. First, they aid 
students in becoming gainfully employed 
in the actuarial division of large insur- 
ance companies. Second, they serve as 
stepping stones to success by aiding the 
students in finding summer employment 
as well as permanent employment upon 
graduation. Finally, the passing of each 
examination provides substantial finan- 
cial increment as well as presohal satis- 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 7, 1963 

The Moravian and Valley lines clash as Wes MacMillan is stopped during the 
Dutchmen 9-7 victory on Homecoming Day. 

Dutchmen Lose Third, 
Record Stands At 2-3 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen absorbed their third loss of the 
season as the Red Devils of Dickinson scored three times in the second 
quarter and walked away with the contest. 

As was the case in the Muhlenberg game the Valley hit the score- 
board first and led through the first quarter as John Vaszily hit Wes 
MacMillan on a fifteen-yard scoring pass to complete a fifty-three yard 

After trading fumbles the Devils found 
themselves on the Valley 25. Seven plays 
later on a fourth and four situation, Hal 
Harris hit Joel Rome for the touchdown. 
The passing attempt for the extra point 
failed as MacMillan grabbed it. 

The next Dickinson score came on a 
seventy-seven yard jaunt by Dan Shaver. 
The conversion attempt failed and the 
score was 12-8. 

On the first play following Dickinson's 
kickoff, the Valley fumbled and Dickin- 
son was in possession on the LV 30. 
Harris threw fifteen yards to Rome and 
then came right back to Rome with an- 
other pass putting the ball on the one. 

Wes MacMillan, senior captain of the 
Dutchmen squad, accepts Kalo's newly 
instituted Outstanding Senior Award from 
the president of Kappa Lambda Sigma, 
Steve Hildreth, at the conclusion of the 
Homecoming game. 

Harris then sneaked over for the score. 
Wayne Rickert passed to Bill Penney for 
the extra points and gave the visitors from 
Carlisle a 20-8 halftime edge. 

Within three minutes after the begin- 
ning of the second half, Dickinson recov- 
ered another Valley fumble, this time on 
the LV 11. Penney then took the ball 
and went around the end for the score. 
Larry Snyder kicked the point for a 27-8 

The final Dickinson score came in the 
fourth quarter when Dave Averback pick- 
ed off a Denny Gagnon pass and went 
eighty-five yards for the score. Snyder 
once again supplied the point after mak- 
ing the final score 34-8. 

Dickinson outgained the Valley on the 
ground 208 yards to 96, but LV led in 
passing yardage 166 to 103 and first 
downs 15 to 13. The Dutchmen threw 
38 times and completed 11. 

The story of the game, however, lies in 
the three lost fumbles and one intercepted 
pass chalked up against the hosts. 

The win puts Dickinson at 4-1 and 
drops the Dutchmen to a 2-3 record. 

MacMillan was named the Valley's out- 
standing back while Mike Kildee received 

the best lineman award and Carl Ander- 
son the best sophomore.

McHenry Reviews 
'63 Valley Season 

by Jim Mann 

The LVC football team has been play- 
ing well but has made costly mistakes. In 
a recent interview, Coach McHenry 
stated "We have been hurt by inexperi- 
ence and by an unusual number of in- 
juries and sicknesses. The switching of 
positions to fill gaps, especially in the line, 
has hurt us. We've been encouraged by 
our young players and we've played well; 
but errors have cost us a number of 
touchdowns that normally would have 
been avoided. Our inability to score once 
we are within the twenty yard line has 
also proven harmful." 

"The LVC offensive game," according 
to McHenry, "needs some improvement." 
He went on to say he is pleased with the 
passing game which is way above the aver- 
age; but he is disappointed in the running 
because it is not gaining enough yardage. 
The offensive mistakes such as fumbling 
and interceptions have also hurt us by 
"keeping the defense in the hole." 

Coach McHenry also inferred he was 
not satisfied with the defensive game. He 
feels that it has held up exceptionally 
well, but it is not effective enough against 
passing and it has also made errors that 
have hurt. These facts were evident in 
last Saturday's game when three touch- 
downs were scored by Dickinson with total 
yard gainage of less than fifty yards. Three 
mistakes within the thirty yard line cost 
us twenty-two points. 

When asked if he felt team spirit was 
lacking, Coach McHenry emphatically re- 
plied "No! The spirit is good. Our prob- 
lem is more a lack of confidence than 
anything." He sighted the fact that the 
team didn't have the inspiration of junior 
and senior players. Returning this fall 
were fifteen boys, only nine of which 
were lettermen. 

The coach feels that this year's team 
"has great potential, but it lacks the ex- 
perience, size and depth of previous 
teams; however, without the freshmen, 
who lack the size and experience, we 
would be lost." 

In reference to the three remaining 
games Coach McHenry said "We have 
three tough games ahead of us, but we 
have a fighting chance in all three if we 
pull together and nullify our errors." Al 
bright, whom we haven't beaten in ten 
years, is the best team we face all year; 
they average twenty-five pounds per man 
over us. Ursinus has good passing and 
an experienced squad, and PMC has 
shown their potential by their victory 
over Drexel last Saturday with a score of 
ten to nothing. 



— MOvv THAT W^N'T £>UOA A HAKf7 WT, lU* 

Dutch Flier 

By Chip Burkhardt 

So far this season most of the attention of the fans has been directed 
to the fortunes of the football team as a unit, which is as it should be, but I 
feel that it would be interesting if we took a look at some of the individual 
accomplishments piled up through the first five games. 

First, we'll take a look at the offense. Here we find that Wes Mac- 
Millan is the team's leading rusher having gained 284 yards in 72 carries 
for a 3.9 yard per carry average. Pete Padley runs second with 111 yards 
in 35 carries while Jake Kimmel has the best yard per carry average with 
a 6.9 mark. 

In the passing department John Vaszily leads in attempts (48), com- 
pletions (26), and yardage (349). He has also thrown five T.D. passes and 
is tied with Wes MacMillian for percentage completed (.54). Wes is 
second on the team with passing yardage of 101 yards and one touch- 
down pass. 

Jake Kimmel is the team's leading pass receiver having pulled down 
twelve tosses for 209 yards and one touchdown. MacMillan also runs 
second in this department having pulled down ten throws for 205 yards 
and three touchdowns. 

MacMillan also leads the Valley scoring parade with four touchdowns 
for 24 points. Larry Painter is in the second spot with two scores for 
twelve points. 

Defensive standouts, as far as taking the ball from the opposition 
goes, include, once again, MacMillan, who has intercepted four enemy 
passes for 43 yards, Joe Mowrer, Jake Kimmel and all ECAC guard, Bill 
Hohenshelt, all having intercepted one each. 

In the fumble recovery department frosh Bob Hoerrner leads with 
three, followed by Hohenshelt with two, and Terry Herr, Mike Kildee and 
Dave Padley with one apiece. 

As a unit the Valley has picked up 64 first downs to the oppositions' 
52 and has gained 1188 total yards to 1141, but trails on the scoreboard 


52 to 105. Below are the complete totals.

Pr. Wethington Joins Faculty 

HJitlt Z)ke 3aculty, 

By Kathy Gunnet 

This year Lebanon Valley College welcomes a number of new 
professors to its teaching staff. Among them is Dr. L. Elbert Wethington, 
professor of philosophy and religion. He comes to us almost directly from 
the Philippine Islands where he spent the years between 1954 and May, 
1963, in teaching at Union Theological Seminary in Manila. This semi- 
nary, which was established in 1907, was one of the first interdenomina- 
tional institutions founded abroad. Here he taught Christian doctrine to 
many of the seventy-five students who are enrolled for the three-year 
course. Although the school is independent of ties with specific colleges, it 
is closely associated with the Christian University in the Philippines and is 
mainly Methodist. Most of the faculty is composed of Filipinos, and here 
Dr. Wethington is an exception. 

He was born and raised in Durham, 
North Carolina, as was his wife. As a 
result, he attended Duke University, from 
which he was graduated and from which 
he received his Ph. D. in 1949. For two 
years after his graduation, he taught at 
Bucknell. Then opportunities developed 
which allowed him to become affiliated 
with either American University in Wash- 
ington, D. C, or with Duke. Given this 
choice, he returned home to Duke where 
he taught for five years. Always intensely 
interested in missions and in teaching in 
a foreign country, Dr. Wethington set his 
sights on Southeast Asia. His chance 
came in 1954 when the Board of Missions 
of the Methodist church appointed him 
to a teaching position at Union Seminary. 
Hence, Manila became home to Dr. and 
Mrs. Wethington and their three children, 
Olin, 15; Joyce Kay, 12; and Mark Wes- 
ley, 9. 

About midway between the date of 
their departure to the Philippines and 
their return to the United States, the 
Wethington family was granted a fur- 
lough because of illness in Mrs. Wething- 
ton's family. This eighteen month leave 
was far from a vacation, however. Upon 
returning to North Carolina, Dr. Wething- 
ton also returned to Duke where he served 
as a visiting professor. Soon he was re- 
quested to aid in the establishment of a 
new Methodist college in North Carolina. 
This involved acting as assistant to the 
president of the college in setting up the 
curriculum, appointing professors and ad- 
ministrators, and developing the basic 
policy of the new college. 

Finally, he and his family returned to 
Manila after some indecision as to 
whether to stay at the new college or to 
return to their old position. Thus he 
completed three more years of service to 
the seminary. Ending his term this past 
May, he looked homeward and heeded 
the call of Lebanon Valley College. 

Of his experiences here he says en- 
thusiastically that he and his family were 
"simply delighted with everything." He 

feels that a small liberal arts college such 
as this has opportunities that cannot be 
found elsewhere. Somewhat apprehensive 
because of what he had heard of the 
Pennsylvania Dutch coolness toward 
strangers, the Wethingtons were happy to 
find warm personal relationships with 
faculty, townspeople, and students alike. 
It is here that Dr. Wethington feels the 
challenge of working with young people 
and admits that his avocation has always 
been Christian faith in education. 

Employed to teach four subjects — Hu- 
manities, Religion 12, Seminar in Classi- 
cal Christian Thinking, and World Reli- 
gions — he is much in favor of integrated 
courses and is especially enjoying his Hu- 
manities course. Besides giving him a 
good reason to review such literature as 
Plato and Chaucer, the subject enables 
him to become better acquainted with his 
students than do his religion courses, be- 
cause this class permits him to see them 
in more than just the religious phase of 
their lives. 

Knowing people is important to Dr. 
Wethington. He shows a keen interest 
in others and says that his family is what 
makes him what he is. His wife has 
gained credit for herself in Annville by 
her display of Chinese brushwork which 
was shown in Carnegie lounge. His chil- 
dren are presently enrolled in the public 
schools of Annville, Olin and Joyce Kay 
attending Annville-Cleona High School 
and Mark Wesley attending Annville Ele- 
mentary School. Formerly taught in 
the American school in Manila, the 
youngsters had little trouble adjusting to 
the methods of education used in the 
United States. AH their classes were 
taught in English and the material covered 
paralleled that used here. 

Dr. Wethington has also been active in 
writing and publishing doctrinal materials 
for use in the Philippines and has been a 
member of the board of Trustees of both 
the Philippine Weslyan College and a 
Philippine nursing school. 



Rev. Peter Atsales 
Discusses Aspects 

by Sharon Stetler 

The Rev. Peter A. Atsales, the chapel 
speaker on November 5 from the Holy 
Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Har- 
risburg, brought to the attention of the 
student body an important problem which 
he considers to be present in our society. 
This is the common false belief of many 
people in old proverbs or addages. Not 
indicating that all such sayings are bad, 
Rev. Atsales mentioned two which he 
feels should be reconsidered by Christians: 
"When in Rome do as the Romans do," 
and "You can't change human nature." 
It was pointed out by Rev. Atsales in the 
course of his message that the hope of 
the world lies with those who transform 
it, not with those who are conformed by 
it. He used the specific illustration that 
Rome was definitely changed by the 
Apostle Paul, but not vice-versa. Rev. 
Atsales pointed out that the basis of Chris- 
tianity is the change in human nature. 
He feels that people must change in or- 
der to see the end of today's problems 
and to establish Christ's kingdom on 

To help answer many of the questions 
which were aroused in the minds of the 
students, Rev. Atsales answered some 
questions and contributed some helpful 
information concerning his religion. 

Greek Orthodoxy is the oldest Chris- 
tian body in the world and today ranks 
second in size among world religions. It 
is a democratic organization administered 
by clergy and laymen. Greek Orthodoxy 
has in common with the rest of the world 
the fact that its faith is based on the first 
ecumenical synods. The Archbishop of 
the Greek Orthodox Church is presently 
serving as one of the four presidents of 
the World Council of Churches. 

Rev. Atsales pointed out that the 
word "Orthodoxy" should most correctly 
be prefaced with the word "hellenic" 
rather than the word "Greek." The lat- 
ter simply indicates the geographic area 
from which the true beliefs of the church 
were set down. This faith has been 
adapted by different peoples of the world 
in various areas to suit their particular 
interests. Nevertheless, each branch, such 
as Russian Greek Orthodoxy, retains the 
word "Greek." 

The Greek Orthodox Church makes use 
of the seven sacraments which are a part 
of the Roman Catholic faith. These, ac- 
cording to Rev. Atsales, should be called 
the seven mysteries. The belief that any- 
where where one, two, or three people are 
gathered for worship, God will be present 
is also classed as a mystery by the church 

Liturgy plays a very significant role in 
the Greek Orthodox Church and forms 
the basis of the worship services. The 
elaborate vestments worn by the clergy 
date from the third century. At that time 
in history, when other religious sects were 
turning to the less embellished aspects of 
worship, the laymen of the Greek Ortho- 
dox faith insisted that their clergymen re- 
tain their ornate garbs. To this day the 
practice has continued and helps to ac- 
count for the opinion of most Protestant 
denominations that the Greek Orthodox 
Church is very ostentatious. 

The Greek Orthodoxy of the modern 
United States differs only in one respect 
from that of the Old World in ancient or 
present times. Formerly and in many 
modern European churches the use of 
pews or seats and the use of organs is 
forbidden. The people stand to praise 
God; therefore there is no need for pews 
Pitchpipes were and are used in the musi- 
cal portion of the worship service. Many 
of the churches in the United States have 
abandoned these two restrictions. Rev 
Atsales' church has both an organ and 
pews for the worshippers. 

Rev. Atsales was eager to point out 
that, although orthodoxy to many people 
means reliance on old ideas, this holds 
true in his church only to the extent that 
the ritual, lituragy, etc. do not change. 
But as far as change in the realm of man's 
mind and ideas is concerned, the Greek 
Orthodox Church believes that it is ab- 
solutely necessary. 

Members of the Women's Hockey Team, lead by captain Sandy Beltz, drive 
toward the goal during a recent game. The girls completed their season with a 4-1 

Girls' Hockey Team 
Completes Fall Season 

The girls' varsity field hockey team at Lebanon Valley College com- 
pleted the season with a record of one win and four losses. The junior 
varsity squad finished with a record of three losses, one tie, and no wins. 

This season has been the rebuilding year for the squad. Eighteen of 
the 25 girls on the team are freshmen, five of whom received varsity 
experience this season. Two of the remaining seven upperclassmen are 
newcomers to the hockey squad. 

Next year the Valley eleven will face 
the loss of two forward line varsity play- 
ers. With the graduation of Sandy Beltz, 
Valley will lose the leading scorer of this 
season. The other loss is Sally Breiden- 
thal, a sophomore who is in the five-year 
nursing plan. Sally's loss will be felt in 
the forward line, where she occupies the 
center forward position. 

Members of the team who have hit the 
scoring column are Sandy Beltz, six goals; 
Marcia Miller, four goals; Sally Breiden- 
thal, 2 goals; and Elma Lowrie, one goal. 
All of the scorers are forward-line play- 

The Valley girls showed improvement 
throughout the season. With a bit more 
practice, the final results may have been 
more in favor of the Valley eleven. 

Valley's one victory was against the 
Moravian squad on Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege Day. Combined with the victories 
of the football and cross country teams, 
the girls again rounded out the triple de- 
feat of Moravian. Valley trampled Mora- 
vian with a score of 5-1, with Sally Brei- 
denthal and Marcia Miller each scoring 
two goals and Sandy Beltz tallying one 

In the final game of the season Dickin- 
son defeated LVC by a score of 2-3. 
Dickinson led 2-0 at the end of the first 
half. Sandy Beltz and Marcia Miller con- 
tributed one goal each in the second half, 
but their attempts were futile with an ad- 
ditional goal scored by Dickinson. 

Coach Betty Jane Bowman feels that if 
all or most of this year's squad members 
return next year and additional freshmen 
join the team, prospects for the future 
look very good. With experience gained 
this year in key positions, the Valley elev- 
en should have a winning year.

lennium in 1966. This will mark the 
1000th year of Poland's official accept- 
ance of Christianity and her entry into 
the community of western Christian civi- 
lization. The contest is designed to stim- 
ulate the study of Poland's achievements 
throughout ten centuries, her contribu- 
tion to mankind, and her dedication to 
liberty despite a history of domination 
and partition by other countries at vari- 
ous times.

jazz concert to be held tomorrow evening. 
Students are reminded that tickets may 
be purchased from any Sinfonia member 
or at the door. 

Since that time they have performed for 
numerous church receptions, high school 
assemblies, campus dances and hootenan- 
nies. They will soon be singing for a 
business gathering at the Hoffman House 
and for the EUB Youth Fellowship Con- 
vention to be held Saturday at LVC. 

Last year many listeners of WLBR en- 
joyed the 15-minute radio programs by 
the Philo Four. More shows are being 
planned for this year, and the boys are 
already starting to prepare tapes. 

Campus Activities 

All four members of this quartet keep 
quite busy with campus activities when 
not strumming the guitar. Carvel, an 
economics major, is a member of the in- 
vestment club and has played varsity 
baseball. Jim Beck, a pre-med student, 
is president of Faculty-Student Council 
and the Psychology Club and is vice-presi- 
dent of the Senate. Tom Kent is major- 
ing in psychology and is vice-president of 
the Psych Club. He is also on the varsity 
wrestling squad. Jim Cromer, majoring 
in accounting, is an assistant in the eco- 
nomics department and has been given a 
Price-Waterhouse internship. All four 
hail from Pennsylvania: Tom Kent and 
Jim Beck from the Philadelphia area, Jim 
Cromer from Dillsburg, and Carvel 
Mowery from Bloomsburg. 

Since three-fourths of the group will be 
graduating in June, this is the last year 
the Philo Four will be singing at Leba- 
non Valley. However, they are looking 
forward to another successful year as 
Annville's only troubadours and are anxi- 
ous to accept more singing engagements. 
The Philo Four enjoy singing all types of 
folk music and are always well received 
by audiences in this area. Join the many 
folk singing enthusiasts who will be hear- 
ing their revelry at Saturday's Victory

Integrated Studies — 
A Necessary Evil? 

By Carol Mickey 

When they first come to Lebanon Valley, students hear many stories, 
pro and con, about the nature of LVC's Integrated Studies program. 
Therefore some students approach these courses with an attitude of indif- 
ference and perhaps a feeling that the course is useless. 

The LVC catalogue states that some of the basic aims of Integrated 
Studies courses are to acquaint the student with the nature of the physical 
universe; to interest him in personal, social and civic problems; to help 
him to intelligently shape his own attitudes; to provide him with an appre- 
ciation of man's expression through the arts; and to prepare him to live 
with himself and others. 

I. S. 10, Integrated Sciences, is an in- 
tegration of the physical and biological 
sciences. Humanities, 1. S. 20, is the 
study of "Man's Quest for Values as Re- 
corded In the Literature of the Western 
World." In the social science field, I. S. 
15, A Survey of Man's Relationship to 
Society, is an introduction to the various 
social sciences. 

One must realize that these courses are 
not designed to delve deeply into specific 
areas of thought. They are designed to 
give the student an opportunity to explore 
wide areas of knowledge and discover 
how his field of study fits into the larger 
pattern of society. 

In order to discover students' reactions 
to these courses, La Vie Inquires, "Do the 
I. S. courses fulfill these aims in their 
respective fields?" 

Mary Ellen Olm- 
sted: "The student 
who approaches an 
Integrated Studies 
course with an in- 
quiring attitude and 
knowledge that the 
course includes a 
wide variety of ma- 
terial will find that 
each individual 
course fulfills some 
of its basic aims. 

"I. S. 10 focuses upon the physical 
universe, I. S. 15 on personal, social, and 
civic problems, and I. S. 20 on man's 
expression through the arts. 

"A student who can expand his think- 
ing to realize that he is but 'one cell in 
a body of a billion cells,' will find that 
each successive I. S. course helps to mold 
his thinking and prepare him for a fuller 
life. When these things do not happen, it 
is the fault of the small-thinking student 
rather than the professors or literature of 
the course. The questions are there, but 
we must work to find the answers." 

Eston Evans: "In the I. S. 15 course I 
have encountered several interesting read 
ings which broadened my views as to the 
social and civic problems of contemporary 
society, and I surely would not have read 
much of this literature on my own time. 
The I. S. 20 course is more interesting 
than informing, in my opinion, and from 
it I find myself appreciating literature 
which I would have formerly neglected 

Judy K. Cassel: "Since I have not taken 
the I. S. 10 course, I can only speak in 
reference to the I. S. 15 and I. S. 20 
classes that I have had. 

"I. S. 15 was an informative course, 
but as a freshman I found myself lacking 
in a sound background in the social sci- 
ences. I spent more time trying to keep 
up on my reading and stuff facts into my 
head for tests. In doing this I only re- 
ceived a surface education in the course — 
I didn't have time to think too deeply on 
th issues presented. 

"I. S. 20 was entirely different. Al- 
though there was a considerable amount 
of reading necessary for the course, the 
material was easy to grasp and I had more 
time to evaluate, question and discuss. I 
believe that it was through this course that 
I finally experienced a high educational 
and intellectual awakening. I became 
deeply involved in discussions, not only 
in class but more important with my 
friends back at the dorm. I. S. 20 was 
the most gratifying course I have had 
while here at school." 

Bill Burkett: "Throughout the nation, 
overspecialization is a growing danger to 
education, especially in the liberal arts 
schools. It is, in my opinion, necessary 

to keep aware of changes in our culture 
and that of others, especially in the twen- 
tieth century when technological change 
is so prominent. The I. S. courses offered 
at Valley are an effort to make one aware 
of the society around us, and to further 
an awareness of our culture — its mores 
and wisdoms. I feel that these courses 
are necessary in the development of a cul- 
tural awareness, which I believe important 
in a highly specialized world into which 
today's college graduate steps. The I. S. 
15-30 course as well as the Humanities 
course both fulfill this need where the 
student applies himself. I feel they are a 
necessary part of the liberal arts back- 
ground obtainable here at Valley." 

Jim Tongu: "There are three or more 
I. S. courses in this college and I had 
dealings only with I. S. 10 and, at present, 
I am with I. S. 20. Whatever I may at- 
tempt to say in answer to the above 
question is influenced by the personal ex- 
perience I have had with I. S. 10 and with 
what experience I am having with I. S. 20. 

"As far as my experience with I. S. 10 
goes, that course gave me less acquaint- 
ance with the nature of the physical uni- 
verse, an aspect upon which this question 
expects me to comment; the said course 
did not interest me in my personal, social, 
of civic problems. I cannot see how I. S. 
10 helped me 'to intelligently shape [my] 
own attitudes.' To save a long argument, 
this particular I. S. course did little for 
me when one examines it and the said 
aims brought up by La Vie. Either I was 
a failure for the course, or it was a failure 
for me. It must be one of the two. 

"However, let us give the Devil its due. 
In my opinion I. S. 20 is quite a different 
thing when I begin to evaluate the I. S. 

"I have not yet stayed by with this 
course but I like it very much. For me, 
it fulfills the aims drawn up for it. What 
else is more interesting than to sit in class 
and hear students giving their personal 
views about what Plato, Aristotle, So- 
crates, and others said about life! 

"If I hear somebody say that an 'un- 
examined life is not worth living,' that 
sets me thinking about what to do with 
my own life. This particular I. S. course 
does justice to some of the basic aims. 

"We would only do justice to the I. S. 
courses if we would evaluate them one by 

"Left with me, I would rather go with 
I. S. 20 or I. S. 15 than I. S. 10. But 
these, of course are my personal views 
about the I. S. courses."

Accounting Seniors 
Receive Internships 

Five seniors majoring in the department of economics and business 
administration will be afforded the opportunity to serve public accounting 
internships with Price Waterhouse and Company, one of the major national 
CPA firms, for the period December 21 to February 2 
Serving in the Philadelphia office will 

be James L. Cromer, Jr., and Lavelle H. 
Arnold. Stephen C. Hildreth will intern 
in the New York office and Marvin L. 
Hendrix and John A. Spoonhour, Jr., 
will serve their internships in the Chicago 

Each of the students was selected after 
a review of his academic record by the 
accounting firm, Dean Carl Y. Ehrhart 
and Dr. Robert C. Riley, chairman of the 
department of economics and business 
administration. This review was follow- 
ed by a personal interview with a rep- 
resentative of the company. 

Lebanon Valley College students who 
qualify have had the opportunity to par- 
ticipate in such an internship with Price 
Waterhouse and Company since 1954. 
Since the introduction of this program 
eighteen students have served as account- 
ing interns in the New York, Boston, 
Philadelphia, Chicago and Milwaukee of- 
fices of the company. 

Bissinger To Participate 
In Lectureship Program 

With the financial support of the Na- 
tional Science Foundation, the Mathe- 
matics Association of America will spon- 
sor for the next two years a visiting lec- 
turer program to secondary schools. This 
year the lectureship will visit a total of 
twelve regions of the continental United 
States, including more than twenty-five 
states. The program will follow, in gen- 
eral, the procedures of the Association's 
visiting lecturer to colleges, successfully 
operated since 1954. 

The general aims of the Visiting Lec- 
turer Programs to Secondary Schools are 
the following: 

a. To strengthen and stimulate the 
mathematics programs of secondary 

b. To encourage cooperation between 
college and secondary school mathematics 

c To provide staff and students in sec- 
ondary school an opportunity for addi- 
tional contacts with productive and crea- 
tive mathematicians. 

<L To aim in the motivation of able 
students toward careers in mathematics 
and the teaching of mathematics. 

Elected to the position of regional rep- 
resentative of the states of Pennsylvania, 
Maryland, and Delaware is Dr. Barnard 
Bissinger, head of the department of 
Mathematics at Lebanon Valley College. 
^ Bissinger, who also took part in the 
Program last year, plans to spend several 
<%s speaking and teaching at several high 
schools in the area. 

LVC accounting students have con- 
sistently placed high in the achievement 
tests prepared by the American Institute 
of Certified Public Accountants. Valley 
students regularly score above the na- 
tional average (four out of five on Level 
I and two out of three on Level II) on 
these tests. Last year LVC's median class 
score on Level I was tied for the highest 
score out of fifty-nine colleges that used 
this examination. 

Bremer, Horn To Speak 
In Forthcoming Services 

The Rev. David H. Bremer, Ph. D., 
chaplain of Muhlenberg College, and the 
Rev. Paul D. Horn, D.D., superintendent 
of the Pennsylvania Conference of the 
Evangelical United Brethren Church are 
scheduled to be the chapel speakers on 
November 26 and December 3 respec- 

Dr. Bremer received his undergradu- 
ate education at Wittenberg College and 
B.C. degree at the Chicago Lutheran 
Theological Seminary in 1945. He was 
granted the Ph.D. degree by Boston Uni- 
versity in 1949. 

From his ordination in 1949 until 1952 
Dr. Bremer was Associate Secretary of 
the Board of Education of the United 
Lutheran Church in America with primary 
responsibility in the field of recruitment 
and guidance of candidates for the min- 
istry and other church vocations. In 1952 
he was appointed chaplain of Muhlenberg 
College, where his activities include coun- 
seling and supervision of student religious 
activities and campus worship. 

Dr. Paul Horn was graduated from 
Lebanon Valley College in 1940 and re- 
ceived his B.D. degree in 1943 from 
United Theological Seminary. Albright 
College honored him with an honorary 
Doctor of Divinity degree in 1957. From 
1943 until 1961 Dr. Horn has served 
churches in Scotland, Shippensburg, and 
Silver Spring, all in the Pennsylvania Con- 
ference. In October, 1961 he was elected 
Superintendent of the Pennsylvania Con- 
erence of the Evangelical United Brethren 
Church. Dr. Horn is presently serving 
as a member of the Board of Trustees of 
Lebanon Valley College. 

Terry Herr is pursued by Albright tackles after his pass interception in the 21-12 
upset. Jake Kimmel (25) and Roger Morey (65) move in to block for Herr. 

Members Of Faculty 
Consent To Holiday 

The faculty has granted the student body a football holiday, to be 
celebrated at the conclusion of Thanksgiving vacation on December 2. 
The decision was made at a meeting October 11, following a request di- 
rected through Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of the college, and a stu- 
dent demonstration behind the Administration Building. The rally in- 
cluded cheers, such as "Hey, hey what d'ya say — we want a football 
holiday!", and a march up to Philo Hall to the sound of drumbeats. 

The request and demonstration were stimulated by Lebanon Valley's 
victory over Albright (21-12) on November 9. This was LVC's first 
football triumph over her sister college in ten years. Albright's band 
shared the half-time festivities with Valley's. After each LV score a spe- 
cial sign was paraded around the football field. The third time around its 
bearers were accosted and the sign changed hands. 

At the conclusion of the game Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean of the col- 
lege, presented Wes MacMillan, senior halfback and captain of the team, 
with the football used during the game in honor of his attainment of a 
total of 1,000 yards in rushing during his four-year football career at 

The LV campus underwent a major change as fans returned from 
the game. It was as if classes were cancelled for two weeks. The new 
life was dead, however, by Monday morning, but was revived briefly that 
afternoon during the demonstration. 

Professor Thomas A. Lanese rehearses the Lebanon Valley College Symphony 
Orchestra in preparation for its concert on Monday, November 25, at 8:30 p.m. 

Symphony Orchestra 
To Present Concert 

Robert Mann, first violinist of the Juilliard String Quartet, will be 
appearing as soloist with the Lebanon Valley College Symphony Orchestra 
on Monday, November 25, at 8:30 p.m. Mr. Mann will be performing 
Franz Joseph Haydn's Violin Concerto in C Major, and has composed his 
own cadenzas for this work. 

At the age of 18, Mann was awarded 
a fellowship to Juilliard's Graduate School 
and in 1941 was given the Naumbeurg 
Foundation Award. In the same year he 
made his debut at Town Hall in New 
York City, and in five years he gained 
his present position in the Juilliard String 
Quartet. As a member of this renowned 
group, he has made appearances all over 
the world, making extensive tours of both 
Europe and Russia. 

The Symphony Orchestra is conducted 
by Thomas A. Lanese, assistant professor 
of strings, conducting and theory. Mr. 
Lanese has also done graduate work at 
the Juilliard Graduate School and the 
Manhattan School of Music. 

The concert in Engle Hall will begin 
with An Outdoor Overture by Aaron 
Copland. This work has a predominantly 
brassy brilliance, giving off a spirit of 
youthfulness. Its rhythmic intricacies 
and harmonic originality are characteristic 
of Copland, who composed this overture 
in 1938. 

The second half of the contest will be 
devoted to Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 
in F Major, Opus 93. Called the "little" 
Eighth Symphony, it is one of the lesser 
known of Beethoven's symphonies. The 
fourth movement provides a violent but 
eloquent finale to the lighter and simplier 
style of the first three movements. 

Most of the 39 members of the orches- 
tra are Lebanon Valley College students, 
although 5 of the participants are from 
outside the college. Robert Lau, a jun- 
ior, is Concertmaster of the orchestra. 

This concert on Monday evening prom- 
ises to be an interesting one, due parti- 
cularly to the appearance of Robert Mann, 
one of the outstanding violinists of our 
day. Rarely has the Symphony Orchestra 
been privileged to play with such an artist, 
nor have audiences in this area been able 
to hear many musicians of such impor- 
tance. Tickets may be purchased from 
orchestra members or at the door. 

Tri'Beta Schedules 
November Meeting 

The November meeting of Beta Beta 
Beta will be held Thursday evening, No-

ture room of Science Hall. A thirty- 
minute film, "The Thread of Life," will be 

Throughout the year five-minute lec- 
tures will be given by students. They will 
concern various aspects of biology. The 
lectures for November will be about ana- 
tomy and histology. 

All students are welcome to the Tri- 
Beta meetings. 

Music Students Appear 
In Fall Public Recital 

Four students will be appearing in a 
Public Recital to be held Thursday, No- 
vember 21, at 8 p.m. in Engle Hall. 

Thomas Schwalm will begin the pro- 
gram with Haydn's Sonata in F Major 
for piano. Theodore Weaver will play 
Les Cloches de Geneve by Liszt, fol- 
lowed by Miss Norma Woolston, also a 
pianist. Miss Woolston will play Danse 
by Debussy. Miss JoAnn Dubbs, organ- 
ist, will conclude the program with 
Franck's Prelude, Fugue et Variation. 

Math Professors Attend 
Regional MAA Meeting 

The mathematics department will at- 
tend the annual meeting of the Philadel- 
phia section of the Mathematics Associa- 
tion of America on November 23. This 
year the meeting will be hosted by Hav- 
erford College, Haverford, Pennsylvania. 
Following the invited addresses in the 
morning is a luncheon, with business 
meetings shortly thereafter. The main 
part of the afternoon will be devoted to 
fifteen minute expositions to be present- 
ed by both high school and college faculty 
members. This is the first time such ma- 
terial has been programmed at these meet- 
ings. It is indicative of the general trend 
to balance research with good teach- 
ing. ^ 

AMLEC Releases 
Plans For Summer 

For most American college students, 
summer is a time of either gainful em- 
ployment or uninterrupted leisure. But 
for the approximately 250 students who 
will participate in Michigan State Uni- 
versity's AMLEC program, the summer 
of 1964 will be a time of language study 
and travel in Europe. 

AMLEC, the American Language and 
Education Center, cooperates with a non- 
profit Swiss foundation to offer college 
students an inexpensive opportunity to 
study Spanish, German, French, and 
Italian, while immersed in the culture and 
daily life of the countries in which these 
languages are spoken. 

During the summer of 1963, 243 stu- 
dents, representing 64 American colleges 
and universities, participated in this MSU 
program. They spent six weeks studying 
language and culture, and then travelled 
for three more weeks before returning 

Further information regarding this 
MSU summer language program can be 
obtained by writing AMLEC, Michigan 
State University, East Lansing, Michigan. 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 21, 1963 La 


The root of creation, whether speculative, artistic or practical is, of 
course, an idea. Gradually this idea grows, annexing or using its neigh- 
bors, and becomes a mastering purpose which cannot be resisted. Finally 
it results in some creation. 

The idea for a creative work is found in the imagination of some in- 
dividual. This imagination represents the part of the existing order that 
can still grow. And what man can imagine may one day be achieved. 
The space age opening before our eyes today is nothing but the end result, 
scientifically supported, worked out with infinite toil, of man's first mad, 
unreasonable image of himself flying. 

All human lives of any distinction, even if no durable monument 
prolongs them (such as a painting, statue, poem, building, formula or sym- 
phony) are creative, sometimes in an artistic, sometimes in a practical na- 
ture. There are kind, thoughtful men and women whose names will never 
be known to the world but who were undoubtedly creative. The man 
or society who invented the wheel was definitely creative; the men who 
designed the splendors of the ancient world were also creative. Without 
men such as these our world would never have reached the stage of develop- 
ment which we enjoy today. 

The creative individual is an impressive person and he is so because 
he has, to such a large degree, realized his potentialities. He has become 
in great measure the person he was capable of becoming. 

The development of creativity is dependent, in part, upon the artistic 
and intelligence potential of the individual. No amount of training will 
guarantee that an individual will be able to paint, compose, design well, 
produce a new formula or mathematical theory. But a degree of artistic 
originality and an appreciation of beauty is of great value in the personal 
development of every man. Toward this end the college can and should 
direct its program. For without this creative urge man would be incapable 
of comprehending his present environment and would be unable to look 
ahead with any degree of hope to the future. 

A successful and creative work is not like any other thing in the real 
world. Man does create his works of art — or his anything else, his chemi- 
cal formula or his plans to conquer — in the image of himself. The creative 
force in man is a human attribute which enables him to transcend his 
emotional impressions and to be the creator of an inner world. In this 
way the creative person moves again into the center of civilization and 
the world moves forward because of him. 

Are our college and university graduates of today stimulated only 
toward conformity and acceptance or are they urged to develop individu- 
ally, to think independently and ultimately to create? Perhaps many of 
our professors should reflect. (JKR) 


Thanksgiving is a happy time. The remembrance of the tradition be- 
hind it causes one to think of God and to thank Him for all that he is and 
possesses. The vacation period means so much because it enables one 
to rest, to renew old friendships and to see his loved ones again as they 
gather from distant places to share a meal of turkey and all the trimmings. 

However, the extent of one's rest and fellowship with others often de- 
pends on the degree of efficiency attained before Thanksgiving. Sometimes 
the weight of the books a student carts home is equal to the weight of his 
luggage. Thanksgiving is so often a catch-all period: for the reading of 
a book that should have been finished two weeks ago; for the doing of 
multitudinous over-the-holiday assignments; for the completion of any 
tasks that must be done before Christmas, from term paper writing to gift 
hunting. Of course, one never seems to accomplish as much as he planned. 
The student returns with most of his books unopened and with his mind 
full of guilt and the dread of impending grades. 

The procrastinator, especially, gains less enjoyment from Thanks- 
giving than others, because he is unable to forget his work completely 
and he dislikes disappointing himself and his family by isolating himself. 
However, why must the professor add to his misery by assigning more 
homework? According to Webster, a vacation is "a period of rest and 
freedom from work, study, etc." Is such a time allowed to exist for a 
student at Lebanon Valley, other than between semesters? Is that extra 
assignment in each subject more important than the chance for rest and 
renewal? If so, then students should be forced to stay at college during 
vacations in order to avoid the distractions of family and friends. 

The student body is grateful for the football holiday granted by the 
faculty. One hopes that the faculty will remember the definition of "holi-

their procrastination in order to make this Thanksgiving a period of re- 
newal instead of drudgery. Perhaps after a rest there will be more en- 
thusiasm for learning on this campus. (NLB)

To the Editor of La Vie 

Concerning the Integrated Studies sur- 
vey presented in the last issue of this 
paper I can only add that this was a 
grossly narrow-minded sample of opinion. 
To a person who has nothing to do but 
sit like a lump in the dorm and read 
culturalogically stimulating books twenty- 
nine hours a day, these courses serve their 
purposes. Why not question a science 
major about the aesthetic values of such 
courses? Maybe our faculty's liberal arts 
proponets forget that this is the twen- 
tieth century, where I. S. 15 and a dime 
might buy you a cup of coffee. Maybe 
they forgot that we live in a technological 
age where lack of a solid foundation in 
a given discipline will smother all attempts 
to rise to superiority. Maybe the profes- 
sors don't realize that they are stunting 
their own academic growth by teaching 
such gobbedlygook to a captive audi- 
ence. Why don't they make these courses 
elective? Preposterous! They might have 
to hire another professor to overcome the 
flood of new culture-seeking students try- 
ing desperately to fit I. S. 15 in their 
schedules. How can the student body 
praise a course which not only takes 
every opportunity to cut down its students 
but also schedules its two major exams 
the day after Homecoming and the day 
after Thanksgiving vacation? A mere 
coincidence, by the way! Why don't they 
open their minds and let in some fresh 
air? Adhering to the present liberal arts 
curriculum is analogous to spending four 
years in a closet with a pile of stagnant 
paper-backs in one corner and a lamp in 
another. When the doors of wisdom are 
finally opened, you find that the world 
is four years ahead of you.

To the Editor of La Vie 

I should like to take the opportunity 
afforded by the publication of our cam- 
pus newspaper to express my deep felt ap- 
preciation to those students who partici- 
pated in the Church Day Program held 
Saturday, November 9. Entertaining over 
two thousand young people was a major 
responsibility, and innumerable reports 
have reached my ears from our guests on 
that day concerning the extremely friend- 
ly and courteous reception our students 
gave them. 

To all of you who had anything to do 
with the program go the sincere thanks 
of the college. 

Sincerely yours,

To the Editor of La Vie: 

In response to the editorial which ap- 
peared in the edition of La Vie of October 
26, 1963, we wish to present the "Greek 
Problem" as we see it in our own sorori- 
ties, Kappa Lambda Nu and Delta Lamb- 
da Sigma. 

Our purposes, which we feel are being 
achieved, are to promote leadership and 
scholarship, to develop good character, to 
lay the basis for friendship among girls of 
similar interests, to teach the girls a sense 
of responsibility by encouraging active 
participation in the organization, and to 
provide social affairs for the students on 
this campus. 

The editorial states . . . This selec- 
tivity, or discrimination . . ." Here dis- 
crimination is being used synonymously 
with selectivity. Discrimination carries a 
negative connotation, while selectivity is 
positive. We are selective but do NOT 
discriminate according to race, creed, or 
nationality. In contrast to the "black- 
ball" system carried on by many national 
Greeks, pledges of Clio are chosen by a 
two-thirds majority vote; a specified num- 
ber receiving the highest number of votes 
become Delphian pledges. We have a 
variety of races and religions represented. 
Each person is chosen on her own merits. 
Without a limit fraternities and sororities 
can become so cumbersome that they be- 
come unmanageable. Membership in the 
group has no significance, and the feeling 
of unity and fellowship is destroyed. Since 
a congenial group is necessary for an or 
ganization to carry out its functions, we 
feel we are justified in determining who 
should and who should not belong. Both 
sororities choose those girls who share our 
interests and aims and who are willing to 
work for and with us. It would be ridi- 
culous to want quantity and not quality

Students Tell Views 
On Student Teaching 

by Carol Mickey 

Few of us realize the nature of the student teaching program at 
Lebanon Valley College. 

This is a full time job for elementary education majors who spend the 
entire day teaching, and then face lesson plans, correcting papers and 
other teaching duties in addition to student activities on campus. 

Teachers in the field of secondary education and music education 
spend approximately four hours teaching while carrying courses on camp- 
us. Not only must they prepare to face pupils, but they must study for 
their campus courses. 

These students are preparing to teach 
the leaders of the future generation. Stu- 
dent teaching gives them an insight into 
the task before them. It is also a means 
which will aid them in knowing whether 
they will make good teachers and are 
suited for the job. 

La Vie Inquires attempts to discover the 
feelings of participating students concern- 
ing the program. In this attempt La Vie 
Inquires: "What have been your greatest 
benefits from the student teaching pro- 
gram and/or where would you like 
changes in the program?" 

Nancy Dahringer: 
"In the music de- 
partment we do our 
jtudent teaching from 
kindergarten on up 
to and including 
ninth grade. We al- 
so teach individual 
instrumental lessons 
plus general music 
classes. This gives 
us a good opportu- 
nity to find out exactly what we would 
like to teach plus what grade levels. 
Speaking from the general music class 
angle, I can honestly say that student 
teaching gives you a good insight as to 
how to discipline a class and how to get 
a class working for you under good guid- 

"One change that I think would be 
beneficial to music students is that it 
would be better if we could possibly do 
our student teaching in a block program. 
As it now stands, we have classes to keep 
up with plus the making up of lesson 
plans. I feel that if we could devote 
our time solely to the preparation for 
teaching rather than studies and teach- 
ing, we would get that much more out of 
the student teaching program." 

Doug Shaw: "My greatest benefit from 
student teaching has been to find a prac- 
tical way to utilize my education. It's 
given me professional experience within 
an academic framework and I have found 
the criticism and help of faculty mem- 
bers extremely worth while. Although I 
don't plan to go directly into teaching, I 
have found the experience stimulating 
and highly challenging. 

"The one immediate change I would 
like to see effected is to allow student 
teachers to teach full time for eight weeks 
and attend classes for eight weeks, rather 
than teaching and trying to do justice to 
a string of college courses. This gets 

Carol Klock: "I am now engaged in the 
student teaching program for secondary 
teachers. One benefit from this program 
is that I come in contact with the many 
different types of pupils, and I can ob- 
serve the problems and the interests that 
the students may have. A teacher must 
learn to deal with these problems, and it 
is up to the teacher to shape their future 

"I enjoy associating with the teachers 
at Annville-Cleona High School. They 
have been very friendly, cooperative, and 
would do anything to help me. 

"The main disadvantage to this program 
is that there are not enough hours in the 
day to do all that is necessary. Besides 
student teaching for four to five hours a 
day, I have three required courses in my 
major field. I have found that there is 
not enough time to spend on my regular 
courses plus my student teaching. Maybe 
this can be corrected in the future pro- 
grams for secondary student teachers." 

Barb Speicher: "Since I began school 
with the children I feel I have obtained 
a very realistic view of the classroom situ- 
ation and of the work that is entailed in 
starting a school year. I feel the present 
program of elementary student teaching 
gives elementary education majors a 
broad background of experience before 
we begin on our own." 

Carol Deichert: "I have been student 
teaching in the Palmyra Jr.-Sr. High 
School for eight weeks now. During this 
time my cooperating teacher has allowed 
me almost complete freedom and has not 
interfered in my classes at all. I think 
that in doing things for myself, I have 
really gotten to know exactly what teach- 
ing is like (dirty work as well as the 
glory). I have been encouraged to ob- 
serve whatever classes and activities that 
I desire around the school, and I think 
that experiences have added to my total 
knowledge of the school. I have enjoyed 
mixing with the other teachers as their 
equal and am constantly amazed that the 
students think of me as the counterpart 
of other teachers. Correcting tests, while 
it can become tedious, does have its 
lighter sides. 

"About the only thing that I would 
change is the schedule which secondary 
student teachers follow. This usually 
consists of a few classes followed by four 
hours in the schools. This is a particu- 
larly exhausting schedule as it requires 
one to constantly divide his efforts, not 
devoting his entire attention to either his 
classes or his teaching." 



















La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 21, 1963 



































Dutch Flier 

By Chip Burkhardt 

Normally, events that happened more than a week before the publi- 
cation of this column are considered to be old news and aren't given too 
much notice, but there is one piece of old news that I think deserves a 
pretty complete recap. I speak, of course, of Lebanon Valley's 21-12 
triumph over the Albright "Lions" after a ten year famine. 

Playing before one of the largest crowds to attend a Valley game in 
recent years, the Valley was outplayed in all offensive departments except 
the one that counted — that being the 21-12 advantage on the score board. 
Albright had gained 226 yards on the ground as compared to LV's 75. 
They completed 11 passes to Valley's total of 5, and piled up 25 first 
downs to LV's 8. 

The only offensive drive that resulted in an LV score was a 44-yard 
march following a fumble recovery by Bill Hohenshelt. Key plays on 
this drive were a 15-yard sprint by Wes MacMillan to the 28 and the 
passing of Denny Gagnon who put the "Dutchmen" in scoring position 
with a strike to frosh, Dave Padley. Two plays later, Pete Padley drove 
over for the TD. With less than a minute left in the first half of play, 
MacMillan threw to little Rich Spallone for the two pointer, making it 8-0. 
Albright's attempt to strike back before the half came to a close proved 
to be disastrous as Wes MacMillan took a long pass off the fingertips of 
two Albright receivers at his own 25 and worked his way through the Al- 
bright tacklers and racked into the end zone for the score, making it 14-0 
at the half. 

The half-time score held until late in the fourth quarter, when Al- 
bright finally hit the score board, as Les Brink hit Simon in the end zone 
for a six-pointer. But, the try for the extra points failed and LV led 14-6. 

Following the kickoff , on which MacMillan was injured and had to 
be removed from the game, the Valley was forced to punt. With the ball 
on the Lion 18, Larry Painter completed what was an outstanding day of 
defensive ball on his part by relieving quarterback Brink of the ball and 
scampering 15 yards to score. This, of course, was referred to by the 
public address system announcer as the Brink's Robbery, LV style. 

Bill DiGiacomo then put the icing on the Valley cake by booting the 
extra point for a 21-6 lead with only 2:15 remaining in the contest. 

Albright managed one more useless score as they went to the air. 
Mike Scarcella completed a pass to Dave McNeely for the game's final 
score, making it 21-12. 

The clutch defensive play on the Valley's part is, of course, the story 
of the game. Five pass interceptions and three fumble recoveries broke 
the back of the "Lion" offensive machine. Terry Herr, Jake Kimmel, and 
Bill Hohenshelt all made key interceptions to stop Albright scoring drives. 
Hohenshelt, for his outstanding play, was, for the second time this season, 
named to the all Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference team. 

MacMillan, who gained 62 of the 75 Valley ground yards, passed the 
1,000 mark in ground yardage for his outstanding four-year career and 
was presented the game ball by Dean Ehrhart during a brief ceremony 
after the game. 

Coach McHenry and his squad are to be congratulated for their vic- 
tory over a much heavier and deeper football team. 

For the first time in ten years it won't be necessary for Valley stu- 
dents and fans to say "wait till next year," when asked about the Albright 
game. It finally happened this year.

Dr. H. Neidig Heads 
Visiting Science Group 

"The Role of Research in the Under- 
graduate Science Program" was the theme 
of the conference for college science 
teachers held at Lebanon Valley College 
on Thursday, November 14. The confer- 
ence, attended by seventy-five college 
professors from the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania Academy of Science in co- 
operation with the Pennsylvania Depart- 
ment of Public Instruction. 

Dr. Howard A. Neidig, professor and 
chairman of the department of chemistry 
at Lebanon Valley College, was directing 
the arrangements. 

The program centered around four 
speakers — Mr. Bernard G. Ryle, director 
of research, AMP, Inc.; Dr. Karl Dittmer, 
program administrator of the Petroleum 
Research Fund, American Chemical So- 
ciety; Professor Fred Snavely, department 
of chemistry, Franklin and Marshall Col- 
lege; and Dr. Neidig. 

Mr. Ryle's topic was "The Industrial 
Research Fad." Dr. Dittmer's address 
was entitled "Undergraduate Research and 
Its Benefits to the College." Professor 
Snavely discussed "Undergraduate Re- 
search Program in Chemistry," and Dr. 
Neidig's subject was "Research Centered 

Other activities for the day included an 
introduction by Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean 
of Lebanon Valley College, and a tour 
of campus facilities.

In Final Home Game 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen closed out the home season 
Saturday with a 28-19 win over the Ursinus Bears with Wes MacMillan 
accounting for 16 of the 28 points. 

The first quarter was scoreless, but Valley moved the ball freely and, 
at one point, had moved inside the Bear fifteen before losing the ball and 
at the end of the quarter was, once again, deep in Ursinus territory.

Weekend Features 
"Powder Puff Game 

Gander weekend is over for another 
year and there are mixed emotions as to 
whether this is a blessing or not. Satur- 
day was started with a bang when the 
Kalo Kuties opposed the Knighties in a 
Powder Puff Football Game at 9:30 A.M. 

Barb Sawyer was quarterback for the 
Kuties and the rest of the players were 
Sandy Beltz, Louise Royahn, Marcia Mil- 
ler, Ellen McFaul, Libbet Vastine, Carol 
Bottcher, Bonnie Weirick, Carolyn Miller, 
Barbara Beltz, Judy Donmoyer, Pat 
Thornton, Elaine Brenner, Bobby Gable, 
Gretchen Long, Wendy Ptacek, Linda 
Rohrer, Janet Bachant and Nancy Bach- 
ant. Their coaches were Dennis Schmid, 
Wayne Miller, Dick McCoy and John 
Davis. Andy Erby quarterbacked for the 
Knighties and their other players included 
Diane Aldinger, Molly Hartman, Bobby 
McCaw, Elma Lowry, Maripat Smith, Pat 
Jones, Sue Bender, Rita Rice, Gail 
Thompson, Liz Beer, Mimi Halliday, 
Karen Bachant, Janet Stein, Ethel Nagle, 
Anne Sargent, Jean Shaw and Donna 

At the end of the first half the score 
was 6-6. Bobby Gable, a freshman, made 
a touchdown for the Kuties and Diane 
Aldinger, another freshman, scored for 
the Knighties. At the end of the 
twenty minute half Clio passed out 
candy bars to all the players. In the 
second exciting half, with two minutes to 
go, Maripat Smith caught a pass in the 
end zone, giving the Knighties a 12-6 
score. The Knighties had a victorious 
morning and both teams played a good 

That evening the girls went calling for 
their dates and escorted them to "Vaga- 
bond Fall" in the auxiliary gym. The 
gym floor was covered with leaves and 
in the middle of the floor was a hobo 
bon fire. On the one wall was a replica 
of a train to set the atmosphere of the 
dance. Refreshments were cider and 
doughnuts in paper bags. 

The dance lasted from 8:30 to 11:30 
and was sponsored by Jiggerboard and the 
Women's Commuter Council. 

John Vaszily rifled a pass to MacMillan 
for the Valley's first score. Upon regain- 
ing possession it took the "Dutchmen" 
only six plays to cover 77 yards for the 
second score, which came on a pass from 
Vaszily to Jake Kimmel. The drive was 
sparked by 31 and 11 -yard sprints by 
pint-sized frosh halfback, Dick Spallone. 

The Bears, trailing by twelve, came 
back on the passing arm of quarterback 
Ron Emmert whose 5-yard pass hit Frank 
Videon in the end zone for six points. 
Dave Weisel kicked the extra point mak- 
ing the score 12-7, in favor of LVC.

students following the game. 

Following the kickoff the Valley storm- 
ed back for another score before the 
half. MacMillan and Vaszily switched 
rolls on the big play of the series as Wes 
hit John with a 23-yard pass to the Bear 
25. Four plays later Wes went in from 
four yards out for his second score of the 
afternoon. He then proceeded to nab 
Vaszily's pass for a two-point conversion 
to bring the score to 20-7, and his per- 
sonal total to 14. 

In the third quarter Lebanon Valley 
concluded its scoring with a 77-yard 
march led by the running and passing of 
Denny Gagnon. Gagnon completed a 
pass to Terry Herr and had runs of 17, 7, 
and 19 yards, the 19 yarder being of the 
scoring variety. MacMillan followed 
Gagnon's score with his second two-point 
conversion of the day, bringing the score 
to 28-7 and putting the game out of reach. 

The Bears scored two more times in a 
losing cause as Dennis Quinn threw 
strikes to Bill Degenhardt and Sholl. 

Between these scoring efforts one more 
Valley drive was sparked by the Mark 
Treftz and Bob Hawk pass-catch com- 
bination, which got the Valley as far as 
the Bear seven before a strong rush forced 
the Dutchmen to give up the ball on

Dr. Geffen Visits Latin America 

With Z)ke faculty, 

by Gail Rice 

"Everything was a revelation for which I was hardly prepared." 

So responded Dr. Geffen to our question about her overall reaction 
to her South American visit this summer as a participant in a field study 
seminar. Sponsored jointly by the Comparative Education Society and 
the Commission on International Relations in Education, a subdivision of 
Phi Delta Kappa, the seminar group visited five Latin American countries 
to learn more about the educational policies and practices in these nations 

Traveling with the group, which ranged 
from 20 to 43 people at different times, 
Dr. Geffen left New York on August 11, 
and spent approximately the next four 
weeks in South America. Travel was 
completely by air, with the exception of 
that between cities. Spending an average 
of five days in each country, Dr. Geffen 
attended an elaborate series of lectures, 
panel discussions, and receptions, all ar- 
ranged so that the group would meet the 
top people in education in each of the 
countries. In addition, visits were made 
to various educational institutions at all 
levels. American representatives to each 
country met and entertained the travelers, 
as did Peace Corps members, people from 
the Alliance for Progress, and government 
officials from the host countries. The 
high point of these meetings was a private 
audience with the President of Argentina. 

The first stop was Brazil, where Dr. 
Geffen spent time in Belo Horizonte, Rio 
de Janeiro, and Brazilia, the new capital. 
"Astonishing" is Dr. Geffen's description 
of Brazilia, a magnificent city built on a 
semi-arid plain, hundreds of miles from 
anything else. From there, Dr. Geffen 
traveled to Argentina, where she visited 
Buenos Aires and Cordoba. Next was 
Chile, in particular the interior capital of 
Santiago and Valparaiso on the Pacific 

In Bolivia, Dr. Geffen was curious to 
know the purpose of having the two capi- 
tals. "Just in case!" seemed to be the na- 
tives' general response. In case of what? 
Still they answered, "Just in case!" While 
here, side trips were made to the alti- 
plano, or "high plateau," which is about 
12,000 to 13,000 feet in altitude and 
stretches almost 2000 miles across South 
America. Dr. Geffen also spent several 
hours visiting villages on Lake Titacaca. 

Last to be visited was Peru, where Dr. 
Geffen first spent time in Lima and then 
took the side trips to various other areas. 
Of particular interest to her was an Inca 
temple ruins, unusual in the fact that, 
though the adobe bricks for the temple 
were made hundreds of years ago, they 
show no signs of deterioration today. 
Archeologists have not been able to dis- 
cover the reason that these simple dirt 
bricks have remained intact. 

From Peru, Dr. Geffen flew back home 
to Philadelphia with a copious supply of 
information on all aspects of her trip. 

Reflecting on the trip, Dr. Geffen feels 
that the most outstanding feature of Latin 
America is the tremendous variety and 
the magnificent contrasts, as well as the 
immensity of the area. After traveling 
the area by plane, she claims she can now 
fully realize such things as the fact that 
Brazil alone is larger than the entire con- 
tinental United States. She was amazed 
at the contrast in areas, finding extremely 
flat desert regions met by towering moun- 
tain ranges, which then gave way to end- 
less plain areas. Such contrast was found 

in the cities, where no sooner having left 
the fantastic harbor of Rio, Dr. Geffen 
found herself in the unbelievably mod- 
ern Brazilia. In Santiago, a magnificent 
city wedged between two mountain ranges, 
Dr. Geffen found blossoming fruit trees 
against a background of snow-covered 
mountains. According to Dr. Geffen, 
traveling by plane makes the effects of 
the magnificence and the immensity even 
more dramatic. 

Dr. Geffen also found the extreme cul- 
tural variation surprising. In short dis- 
tances from each other are areas such as 
the beautiful Cocacabana Beach and the 
horribly poverty-stricken Favela. 

Impressed by the work done by the 
Peace Corps and the Alliance for Pro- 
gress, Dr. Geffen found that both 
groups are well received, as are the Protes- 
tant missionaries who are attempting to 
educate the native peoples. 

The people are desperate for education 
and will do their best to see that their 
children get an education. But the schools 
are poor. All are unheated, and many 
are so crowded that it was impossible for 
the seminar group to enter a classroom 
to observe, for there was not even room 
to stand. Many schools are without text- 
books, and teachers' salaries may range 
from $25 to $35 a month. Latin America 
is sadly lacking in technical training, part- 
ly because there is no money to support 
any technical program. Yet Dr. Geffen 
found that in spite of all the shortages 
there are still dedicated teachers who are 
desperately looking toward the United 
States for aid, for they feel that only edu- 
cation can bring their nations out of the 
poor economic, social, and cultural life. 

In general Dr. Geffen feels that 
"though I did not come away too optimis- 
tic, I was impressed by the unselfish de- 
votion of the scores and scores of South 
Americans whom I met.'* 

Language Clubs Choose 
B. Burkett As President 

Bill Burkett is the newly-elected presi- 
dent of both the German and Russian 
Clubs at Lebanon Valley College, accord- 
ing to Dr. Hilda Damus, advisor of the 
German Club, and Mrs. Geilan Hansen, 
advisor of the Russian Club. 

Assisting Burkett in the Russian Club 
is the vice-president, Clyde Collins. The 
German Club officers include: Vice-pres., 
Cameron Moyer; Sec.-treas., Rita Rice; 
Publicity dir., Francis Miller. 

Foreign Study Program 

Application periods for three full-year 
study programs in Paris, Vienna, and 
Freiburg, West Germany, for United 
States undergraduates opened Monday, 
November 8. The Institute of European 
Studies announced in Chicago that stu- 
dents will have until June 5, 1964, to sub- 
mit formal applications for the 1964- 
1965 programs. 

The Paris Honors program allows quali- 
fied liberal arts students opportunities to 
study in their major fields at the Universi- 
ty of Paris and other Parisian schools. 
Six weeks of intensive language training 
before classes open help to prepare stu- 
dents for courses, which are taught only 
in French. Enrollment is limited to B- 
average juniors and a few outstanding 
sophomores. The Paris program is under 
the direction of the Institut d'Etudes Poli- 
tiques, a part of the University of Paris. 

The Institute's "European Year" pro- 
gram at the University of Vienna offers a 
choice between German and English- 
taught courses in history, political science, 
literature, philosophy, psychology, eco- 
nomics, fine arts, and other fields, plus 
intensive German language instruction 
and opportunities to take regular German- 
taught courses at the university. Appli- 
cants need not have had German, but 
must be juniors or sophomores with at 
least a C-plus average. 

"Das Deutsche Jahr" at the five-hun- 
dred-year-old University of Freiburg, in 
Germany's Black Forest, is conducted for 
juniors in political science, history, litera- 
ture, philosophy, educational theory, and 
psychology. It offers complete integra- 
tion into a European University, together 
with about one hour of tutoring for about 
every hour of class. All courses are con- 
ducted in German. All applicants must 
have a B average. 

Each program includes two field trips 
in western Europe with Institute lecturers. 


. Diebold Analyzes 
Employment Outlook 

McCall's, one of this country's leading women's magazines, published 
an article entitled, "When Will Your Husband Be Obsolete?" in its issue 
of July 1963. At first glance this title would indicate that the article was 
written for married women alone. However, upon looking at the article 
itself, one may discover that it has great significance for all college stu- 
dents, both married and unmarried, male and female. During the past 
month or so, the math department has featured this article on its bulletin 
board, and, according to Dr. Bissinger, head of the department, it has 
attracted the interest of many students of all departments.

As for the organizations on the campus 
ignoring the "quiet, retiring person," this 
is just not true. This was one of the 
reasons for postponing rushing until sec- 
ond semester. We live with and get to 
know these students before we ever vote 
on them. 

We agree with the editorial that there is 
a definite need for more organizations. 
The existing sororities will gladly aid and 
assist in the establishment of such organi- 
zations. However, it is the responsibility 
of the independents who desire these or- 
ganizations to take the initial steps by ex- 
pressing their wishes to the administra-

Patricia Lovelady Chan of the McCall's 
staff, the article considers the futures of 
over one-hundred occupations, listing 
them under one of three headings, "dead- 
end jobs," "status-quo jobs," or "bright- 
future jobs." 

According to Mr. Diebold, sixty million 
Americans can expect to find their work 
changing rapidly within the next thirty 
years. Some of these jobs can be ex- 
pected to completely disappear within that 
time, while others will take a bit longer. 
However, he states that the work of every 
one of these employees is practically cer- 
tain to be obsolete within the next gen- 
eration. Science and engineering seem to 
hold the brightest future, as complicated 
new machines replace unskilled and semi- 
skilled workers. Technology, with its new 
concepts of business management, is hav- 
ing a great effect on office workers and 
and supervisors. At the same time, how- 
ever, new jobs are coming into being in 
areas undreamed of by those living twenty 
years ago. "But," says Mr. Diebold, 
"they are more demanding jobs, requiring 
brand-new skills." 

What will happen to the people holding 
these out-moded jobs? Some will reach 
normal retirement age before the field 
reaches its doom. These people will not 
be replaced. However, the majority of 
the workers in the field will be younger 
people. These will have to be retrained 
to take a more stable place in today's 
changing society. 

Where do you stand? To enable the 
college student to answer this question, 
a partial list of occupations included in 
each of the three categories mentioned 
before will follow. 

Rated as dead-end jobs by the writer 
were: Aircraft-assembly worker, appliance 
or automobile-assembly worker, bank 
worker, bookkeeper, brokerage margin 
clerk, coal miner, court reporter, engineer- 
ing technical assistant, draftsman, farmer, 
foundry worker, grocery store owner or 
clerk, machine tool operator, mail clerk, 
painter, watchmaker, railroad workers of 
all types, steel and textile workers, and 
service station attendants. The decline to 
occur in the prospective of most of these 
jobs is due to increased automation and 
the production of more durable goods. 

Following this list is the list of status- 
quo occupations. These are: Accountant, 
advertising man, air-traffic controller, air- 
line pilot, aluminum worker, automobile 

mechanic, baker, bank manager and 
teller, bricklayer, chemical worker, cook, 
hotel and motel managers, scientific and 
industrial instrument maker, laundry and 
dry cleaning proprietor, logging worker, 
mail carrier, personnel manager, pharm- 
acist, plant manager, plasterer, policeman, 
public relations, purchasing agent, repair- 
man, salesman, travel agent, truck driver, 
and home delivery routeman. 

Finally in the category of jobs with the 
brightest futures are: aerospace engineer, 
aerospace skilled worker, athletic director, 
attorney, chemical engineer, civil engineer, 
communications installer and service 
worker, computer operator or mainten- 
ance worker, business management con- 
sultant, data processing analyst, dentist, 
doctor, economist, electrical or electronic 
engineer, industrial engineer, insurance 
actuary, insurance agent and broker, 
marketing research worker, mathemati- 
cian, mechanical engineer, medical tech- 
nician, metallurgist, nuclear engineer, phy- 
sicist, plastics worker, teacher, telephone 
installer, weather forecaster, and writer 
and editor.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 5, 1963 La 

La Vie Inquires 

Do Valleyites Want 

by Carol Mickey 

In the last several issues of La Vie there has been discussion of the 
need and desirability of starting new social societies at Lebanon Valley. 

Here La Vie Inquires attempts to discover the opinions of various 
officers of existing societies and independents concerning the need of new 
societies on our campus. 

The presidents of Delphian and Clio expressed their opinions in the 
last issue of La Vie and their willingness to help organize new societies. 
Therefore this column will express the opinions of officers of the three 
local fraternities on this issue. La Vie Inquires of these officers, "Do you 
think there is a need for one or more social sororities or fraternities? If 
so, how would you go about starting them? Would you, as an officer of 
an existing fraternity, help organize new organization (s)?" Since this 
question concerns local socities the local chapters of national fraternities 
were not consulted. 

The independents express the most im- 
portant opinions in this question, since 
the organization of any new societies 
would be their responsibility. The pero- 
gative would have to be theirs, rather than 
that of the members of present societies. 
The independents here express their an- 
swers to the question, "Do you think there 
is a need for one or more sororities or fra- 
ternities? If so, how would you go about 
starting them? Would you, as an inde- 
pendent, join or assume leadership of a 
new sorority or fraternity?" 

Ed Ruth, secre- 
tary, Kappa Lambda 
Sigma: "1 feel that 
there is a definite 
need for at least one 
more social sorority 
and traternity. The 
present sororities and 
iraternities are limit- 
ed in membership in 
respect to adequate 
meeting facilities and 
the closeness of fellowship. If the college 
expands, as it expects to in the near fu- 
ture, there will be more pressing demands 
for new social groups. In order to start 
a new society, a group of students with 
like social interests, who are not members 
of present social sororities or fraternities, 
will have to get together and express their 
desire to Inter-Society Council. In turn, 
the Council could help to advise and or- 
ganize a new social group. As an officer 
of Kalo, I would help to advise the new 
group until they are formed, if I were 

Charles Martin, president, Knights of 
the Valley: "If a need should arise on our 
campus for starting a new fraternity, 1 
would heartily support it. At this time, 
however, 1 don't believe that such a need 
exists! The three men's social organiza- 
tions do a more than adequate job in 
serving the male population of LVC and 
any new fraternity would result in a low- 
ering of standards for all involved. 

"1 am not as familiar with the situation 
of the sororities. As an impartial observer 
it seems to me that there could possibly 
be a need for a new sorority since only 
two are now present on campus. It would 
enable the current sororities to reduce 
their size and would not result in a loss 
of quality in either Delphian of Clio. 

"Any attempt to initiate a new sorority 
must come from the students and not an 
existing organization. If I felt the new 
organizations to be legitimate I would be 
more than happy to help them organize 

John Rojahn, corresponding secretary 
(second semester), Phi Lambda Sigma: 

"Lebanon Valley College certainly has a 
need for more than one social organiza- 
tion. The social obligation of the organi- 
zations on campus at present is a large re- 
sponsibility. The existing fraternities and 
sororities are financially limited and the 
ways in which to make a substantial 
amount of money are scarce. Incidentally, 
producing a social event on this campus 
cannot be considered a moneymaking 

"We now have three men's organiza- 
tions on campus. The calendar or social 
events is equally distributed between 
them. These organizations, I feel, have 
done the best they can to satisfy the social 
drive at LVC. 

"To start another organization on such 
small campus would not bring about 
any advantages that I could see. If an- 
other organization was started, I'm afraid 
that it could not exist because of the 
limited financial resources. 

"My suggestions for our campus are: 
(1) new and unique ideas to satisfy more 
people, (2) a stronger and more organized 
council governing the existing societies, 
and (3) a more family-like atmosphere be- 
tween the LVC students." 

Bonnie Miller and Elaine Kreller: "Yes, 
we think that there is a need for more 
sororities or fraternities. 

"First there must be a group of kids 
interested in forming the sorority, who 
must get permission from the dean. They 
should write a constitution and get this 
approved by the right authority. 

"Yes, we would join or assume leader- 
ship of a new sorority. We feel that the 
chance to join a social sorority or frater- 
nity should be open to everyone and not 
be limited to just two or three groups 
with a limited membership." 

Doug Everett: As far as I am concern- 
ed, there is no need for any fraternities, 
let alone any more, on this campus. No 
one has, as yet, convinced me of their 
worth to me. 

"As to whether or not I would join or 
assume leadership of a group such as this, 
I believe I can honestly say that I would 
not consider membership in such groups 
as an improvement of my character, edu- 
cation, or position in society. I find that 
I am busy enough without adding activi- 
ties of this type to my schedule. I feel 
they are unnecessary." 

Claudia Hostetter: "In my opinion, the 
social fraternities and sororities already 
established on this campus serve it quite 
adequately in providing various social 
functions. As for creating a friendlier, 
more unified campus, an additional or 
ganization could not improve upon the 
already friendly, closeknit, atmosphere of 
small college life. 

"As an independent I would not join 
or assume leadership of a newly organized 
social sorority because for me a social 
sorority and its obligations would be more 
deterrent than beneficial to my college 

Rick Carlson: "In evaluating a need for 
one or more additional social sororities or 
fraternities, there are certain facts which 
must be considered. One fact is that any 
campus should have an institution for 
providing the social aspect of education 
This need for a social organization can be 
fulfilled by social sororities or fraternities 
as well as organizations not specifically 
formed for social enrichment (i.e. class ac- 
tivities, clubs, etc.). Another fact is the 
personal need of us all. Acceptance, 
security, identity, and a sense of being 
wanted are some of these. Sororities and 
fraternities help to fulfill these, but other 
organizations can serve the same purpose. 
Therefore, a person not selected by a so- 
cial organization may find satisfaction in 
other activities (i.e. class activities, cliques 
subject matter clubs, SCA, even). 

"Considering these needs and the facili 
ties already available for fulfilling them 
it appears that more social sororities and 
fraternities are not needed." 

The Contemporary Scene 

In his own words John Fitzgerald Ken- 
nedy reveals his profound portrait as a 
great leader of men and defender of world 

"The courage of life is often a less 
dramatic spectacle than the courage of a 
final moment; but it is no less than a 
magnificent mixture of triumph and 
tragedy. A man does what he must — in 
spite of personal consequences, in spite of 
obstacles and dangers and pressures — and 
that is the basis of all human morality." 

Profiles in Courage 

Tn the long history of the world, only 
a few generations have been granted the 
role of defending freedom in its hour 
of maximum danger. I do not shrink 
from this responsibility — I welcome it. 1 
do not believe that any of us would ex- 
change places with any other people or 
any other generation. The energy, the 
faith, the devotion which we bring to this 
endeavor will light our country and all 
who serve it — and the glow from that 
fire can truly light the world. 

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not 
what your country can do for you — ask 
what you can do for your country. 

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not 
what America will do for you, but what 
together we can do for the freedom of 

Finally, whether you are citizens of 
America or citizens of the world, ask of 
us here the same high standards of 
strength and sacrifice which we ask of 
you. With a good conscience our only 
sure reward, with history the final judge 
of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the 
land we love, asking His blessing and 
His help, but knowing that here on earth 
God's work must truly be our own." 

Inaugural Address 

According to the ancient Chinese pro- 
verb, a journey of 1,000 miles must begin 
with a single step. My fellow Americans, 
let us take that first step. Let us, if we

J^etterd Z)o j£a Vie 

To the Editor of La Vie: 

Is it not a shame that in an age when 
young people are accused of being ignor- 
ant of national and international affairs 
and also accused of unconcern for na- 
tional and world welfare that this college 
made no effort to redress this misrepre 
sented attitude? 

On a day that was decreed by President 
Johnson as a national day of mourning 
for our late President students were ex- 
pected to be prepared for and to attend 
morning classes. Perhaps unbeknown to 
the Administration there were students 
who regarded Monday, November 25, 
1963, not as a day for getting out of 
classes, but as a day to join with the rest 
of the world in paying tribute to not only 
a great American President, but to 
great world leader. 

Is it not also a shame that for some- 
thing so trivial as a football victory of 
Lebanon Valley College we are given a 
full day to rejoice, but for the death of 
the President of the United States we are 
given half a day to mourn?

The Future 

President John F. Kennedy has been assassinated. This is a shock- 
ing tragedy facing each person as an individual and America as a nation. 
The office of the President of the United States is almost sacred in the 
eyes of Americans. No one ever really believed that it would be violated 
in this enlightened period of democracy. The assassinations of Abraham 
Lincoln, James Garfield and William McKinley seem so far away, be- 
longing to a less civilized era. The lives of many other people in this 
country have been destroyed or ruined because of the beliefs and ideas 
they have professed, but somehow the Presidency seemed immune from 
this; the impeachment of Andrew Johnson is forgotten as a bad dream. 

Those living in this era, however, will no longer be allowed to for- 
get. Now they must remember and learn to live with the stark reality 
that such events can occur in this country. As the first paralyzing shock 
of President Kennedy's death wears away, America must not be left weak 
and helpless. Citizens could well follow the examples set by Mrs. Jac- 
queline Kennedy and President Lyndon Johnson, Mrs. Kennedy for her 
stalwartness during the crisis and Mr. Johnson for his firm take-over of 
the duties of the nation's highest office and his continued support of the 
programs advocated by Mr. Kennedy. Perhaps the force of the tragedy 
will bring Congress closer together, at least tempoiarily, in an effort to 
pay tribute to Mr. Kennedy's ideals by passing some of the measures he 
proposed. One hopes that someday the price for progress and the further- 
ance of one's ideals will not be so great. (NLB) 

President Kennedy 

While riding in a gala political parade through downtown Dallas, 
Texas, President John F. Kennedy was shot by an assassin. The 35th 
President of the United States died at 1 p.m. CST on November 22, 1963. 

Thus ends, in a terrible tragedy mourned by the nation and most of 
the world, a career that was brilliant and a life that was crowded with 
excitement, adventure and achievement. 

John Fitzgerald Kennedy belonged uniquely to us — to this genera- 
tion, to this nation. He was a man of this time and place in the history 
of our country. He was an eloquent spokesman for the strange new 
world which the Second World War has ushered in. He was a man of 
the world who understood the role of the United States in this world. 
He was a man of peace, a man of political sophistication, a man of deep 
intellect, and a brilliant exponent of American democracy. He has been 
murderously cut off in the prime of his life and power and the Nation has 
suffered another day of infamy which the American people will never for- 
get. And this explains why, as the assassin put a bullet in the brain of 
the President, he also put an everlasting scar on our generation. 

It is only honest to say that many Americans did not always see 
his country's interests as he did. Many differed with his concept of the 
role of Government and the numerous reflections of that view in specific 
issues. Yet everyone could sense his statesmanship. Differences arose, 
often, but always he was able to see another person's point of view and 
persuasively to state his own ideas. These surely are the characteristics 
of a leader of men and a gentleman. 

John Fitzerald Kennedy, the first President born in this century, 
was a man with new, controversial and advanced ideas. He lived to see 
only a few of them reach fulfillment. He cannot yet be measured, and 
he may never be measured, by the crises or debates that seemed to per- 
sist throughout his Presidency. Yet, he can be measured in what he 
knew and felt should be done by himself and for his country. 

As we reflect on this tragic incident let us reflect on our nation. Our 
silence must be broken. We must oppose the extremists and the fanatics 
who ramble on with baseless charges and ugly rumors. We must speak 
out for reason and right and simple human decency. Regardless of the 
issues that divide us we must regard our fellow citizens and the leaders in 
our government with trust, compassion and, most of all, respect. 

We cannot turn the calendars or the clocks back. The world and 
history must and shall go on. Yet, nothing cherished ever wholly 
perishes. Man persists, man with his capacity to dream and hope. Man 
with his capacity for shock, and grief, but also with his inheritance of faith 
and of belief.

Alumni Receives 
'Sports Illustrated' 
Anniversary Award 

by Sharon Stetler 

Sports Illustrated magazine, in their 
November 11, 1963 issue, published the 
names of the twenty-five college football 
players from the class of 1939 who re- 
ceived the Sports Illustrated Silver Anni- 
versary Award for distinguished activities 
and mature citizenship in the years since 
they graduated. 

In this unique award judgment was 
made not on the superior quality of foot- 
ball the man played twenty-five years ago 
but on the nature and extent of the man's 
performance in his career and way of life 
in the intervening twenty-five years. 

In the words of Robert Cantwell of 
Sports Illustrated: 

Men who were playing college 
football in the fall of 1938 faced a 
singular experience: a new period of 
history took shape more visibly for 
them than for any previous college 
The opening day of the collegiate foot- 
ball season in 1938 was the day of the 
Munich Pact and Hitler's march on 
Czechoslovakia. In a few short hours 
the world came to the realization that 
war was not only threatening but immi- 
nent. The men of the generation that 
played football in 1938 moved virtually 
overnight, from college into the demands 
of war and international responsibility. 

No exception was Raymond T. (Ray- 
mie) Frey, Sr., a native of Lebanon, Pa., 
who was nominated for the 1963 Sports 
Illustrated Silver Anniversary All-America 
Award by his alma mater, Lebanon Valley 

Raymond Frey remembers standing that 
October morning on a downtown corner 
in Annville and watching some girls who 
Were also waiting for a ride to Lebanon 
Valley College five miles away. The 
girls were picked up first, but Frey reach- 
e d into military service in 1941. 

Upon graduation from Lebanon Valley 
in 1939, where he was both a football 
a nd basketball letterman, Frey taught high 
school in Marietta, Pa., until he was call- 
e <3 into military service in 1941. While 
attending college Frey was a dedicated 
student who worked hard for grades good 
e nough to justify his four-year football 

In February, 1943, less than a year 
after receiving his commission as a Sec- 
°nd Lieutenant, he was blinded when a 
dynamite charge exploded during a train- 
,R g mission at Camp Carson, Colorado. 

Following his injury, Lt. Frey was a 
Patient at the Valley Forge General Hos- 
pital, where he became interested in re- 

habilitation work and decided upon this 
as his life's work. Upon discharge from 
the service in August, 1943, he under- 
went special training as a blind consultant 
and accepted an assignment at the Valley 
Forge Hospital as an Education and Re- 
habilitation Aide to the Blind. In this 
capacity, he worked with more than 700 
blinded World War II veterans, assisting 
them in making an early adjustment to 
their blindness. 

After World War II, he enrolled at the 
University of Pennsylvania Graduate Hos- 
pital, Philadelphia, where he completed 
his training as a physical therapist in 
September, 1946, attaining a high scho- 
lastic average and serving as president of 
his class. After passing the Pennsylvania 
State Board examinations in October, 

1946, he accepted a position at the New- 
castle Veterans Administration Hospital 
near Wilmington, Delaware, in Novem- 
ber and remained there until August, 

1947, when he returned to his hometown 
of Lebanon and took a position with the 
Lebanon Veterans Administration Hos- 
pital. He has remained at the latter post 
to this day. 

In the local community, he has served 
as a member of various committees of the 
Y. M. C. A. and as a trustee of the Persh- 
ing Avenue Playground Association. In 
the Centenary Methodist Church, he has 
been an outstanding Sunday School teach- 
er and church officer.

Dutch Flier 

By Chip Burkhardt 

With the cancellation of the P. M. C. game, due to' the assassination 
of the President, the 1963 football season came to a close. The team's 
4-3 record gave Coach McHenry his third winning record in as many 
years at the helm of the Valley football efforts. I would now like to 
consider some highlights of the season and take a look at some of the 
personnel prospects for next year. 

The season opened on a bright note as the "Dutchmen" travelled to 
Wilkes-Barre and handed the Wilkes College team a 13-6 setback. Here 
Wes MacMillan began his senior year with a 100 plus rushing perform- 

Things got rougher for the LV squad as they travelled to Drexel and 
Muhlenberg, absorbing 30-6 and 28-16 losses. Each game resulted in 
casualities as Jimmy Duke broke an arm in the Drexel game and Al Bul- 
lard received one while playing Muhlenberg. Duke's services were lost 
until the Albright game, and Bullard did not see action for the remainder 
of the season. 

With a shortage in manpower the Valley limped home to meet Mora- 
vian in the annual Homecoming Game and came out on top with a heart- 
stopping 9-7 victory. 

A field goal by frosh Bob Martalus provided the margin of victory. 
But, the real story of the game was the Valley defensive effort which forced 
two fumbles within their own ten-yard line, both during the final few 
minutes of play. Bill Hohenshelt fell on the ball in the end zone with 
less than two minutes to go to pull the game out of the fire. Hohenshelt's 
performance that day earned him all ECAC recognition at the guard 

The following week, however, things took a turn for the worse. 
Dickinson took advantage of the Valley's inability to hold onto the ball 
and stormed to a 34-8 win for the end of a long string of LV wins in that 
particular series. 

On November 9, the team became the first Valley team to defeat 
Albright in ten years as the "Dutchmen" just wouldn't let the Lions score 
until the game was on ice — although Albright out-gained them in rushing 
and passing. It was the Valley defensive effort that turned the trick. 
Five pass interceptions and three fumble recoveries broke the back of 
the Lion offensive drives. Outstanding plays of the game were Mac- 
Millan's 75-yard return of an intercepted pass and a 19-yard jaunt by 
Larry Painter after he had unceremoniously relieved the Albright quarter- 
back of the ball. In other words, he stole it and scored a touchdown to 
put the game out of Albright's reach. Bill Hohenshelt once again received 
ECAC recognition for his outstanding play. Wes MacMillan passed 
the 1,000 yards gained mark and received the game ball in a short cere- 
mony following the game. 

On the 16th, the Valley closed out the season with a 28-19 win 
over the Ursinus Bears. Wes MacMillan scored 16 of the 28 points by 
scoring two touchdowns and four extra points to close out his collegiate 

As far as personnel loss goes this season, the Dutchmen won't lose 
as many through graduation as in the past, but quality-wise the loss will 
be hard to take. In Mike Kildee, the squad looses a first-rate tackle. 
The other loss everyone is only too well aware of. It would be useless to 
try to describe his value to the team here, but, believe me, it's an under- 
statement to say that he will be missed. His four years of varsity perform- 
ance speak for themselves. 

Although MacMillan and Kildee will be missed, the fact that the 
bulk of the squad will be returning is most encouraging. 

In the line, big Glenn Steck will return to his tackle position and 
have help in some depth at all other positions. Al Bullard will be 100 
per cent again and will be able to resume his duties at tackle, taking up the 
slack left by Kildee. Freshman Bob Heorner and sophomore Carl An- 
derson both turned in fine performances this year and will be returning 
to battle for these positions or possibly for center and guard jobs. At 
the guard spots, Bill Hohenshelt, Roger Morey and Bruce English have the 
most time in, with Hohenshelt a two-time ECAC selection. At center Jim 
Duke returns and will be pushed by place-kicker and letterman Bill Di- 
Giacomo. The ends are well stocked with freshmen Dave Padley and 
Larry Painter, who have seen full time duty this year with the side-lining of 
All-Stater Terry Herr and two-time letterman Harrison Woodruff, both 
hampered physically this season. 

The backfield, although losing MacMillan, will be loaded with ex- 
perience. John Vaszily now has two fine seasons behind him at quarter- 
back and both Dennis Gagnon and Mark Treftz have impressed when 
called upon. Gagnon came on strong at the end of the year and split the 
duties with Vaszily leading the team on its only offensive scoring drive 
against Albright. Besides the quarterback depth, there is no lack of run- 
ning and defensive backs. Frosh Rich Spallone and sophomores Jake 
Kimmel, Pete Padley, and Joe Mowrer all are running threats with Kim- 
mel and Mowrer doubling as defensive specialists. The only lack at the 
moment seems to be a shortage of experienced, big, power runners to 
pick up that short first down yardage, although Terry Herr played the full- 
back spot two years ago and could possibly take over if called upon. 

All told, things don't look bad at all for next year's team, with all 
the returning material and the help they may receive from incoming fresh- 
men. I don't think it would be at all surprising if Coach McHenry gets 
his fourth winning season in a row and maybe even coaches another 
championship team.

Dr. Hess Studies Marine Life 

%Uitk ZJke faculty, 

by Gail Rice 

Five years ago Dr. Paul Hess was at the University of Delaware, 
where he was completing work for his masters degree. While working 
on a study of sharks and rays in the Delaware Bay, he became interested 
in the life studies, and in particular the reproductive habits, of these 

Dr. Hess hoped to relate the reproductive system of the shark to that 
of humans. He chose sharks for his study because they appeared 300 
million years ago and have remained relatively unchanged since then; 
this fact, Dr. Hess feels, might help to determine how the human system 
and habits may have formed. 

With this in mind, he applied to the 
Public Health Service for money to con- 
duct such a study for his doctorate. The 
money obtained, he spent his summers, 
as well as all weekends, for the next four 
years at the University of Delaware 
Marine Laboratory in Lewes, Delaware. 
There he captured sharks himself and kept 
them in sea water tanks during his experi- 

While studying embryonic nutrition in 
the shark, Dr. Hess found one point of 
exceptional interest and value. This was 
a certain sugar conversion in the placenta. 
Such a conversion also takes place in 
higher animals and in humans, but ap- 
pears in no other animal in between. 
Evolution might possibly have been an 
intermediary, but scientists do not know 
how this might have happened. Dr. Hess 
felt that a study of this conversion, which 
remained an independent characteristic of 
the shark for 300 million years and then 
suddenly appeared in humans, might yield 
information on the evolution of the hu- 
man system. 

He completed one segment of his study 
in June, 1963, at which time he received 
his Ph.D. degree. 

Desiring to continue his study of em- 
bryonic nutrition, he spent last summer 
at the Marine Laboratory as Research 
Associate to Dr. Franklin C. Daiber, Resi- 
dent Director of the laboratory. While 
Dr. Daiber was on vacation for six weeks, 
Dr. Hess served as acting director. 

His future plans for this particular 
study are to follow up some of the in- 
formation gained last summer. He would 
like to do this by first applying to various 
government organizations for money 
which he would use to buy new equip- 
ment and to hire two or three senior bio- 
logy majors for his research assistants on 
a yearly basis. These assistants would 
help him with the analytical work at LVC 
during the school year and would then 
accompany him to Lewes, Delaware for 
experimentation during the summer 
months. By using this method, Dr. Hess 
hopes to continue his own study while in- 
troducing senior biology majors to an 
actual field project. 

But this is not to be the only project 
which his students have a chance to work 
on. Several of his students are currently 
working on independent research projects 
in some phase of animal physiology. These 
include such topics as the role of deu- 
terium oxide in marine animal metabol- 
ism, in developing chick embryos, and 
the ability of animals to absorb nutrients 
through lung tissue. Through these, Dr. 
Hess says, students gain experience in 
basic scientific investigation and are in- 
troduced to the modern methods of bio- 
chemical analysis. 

Junior Class Lists 
Semester Activities 

The Class of '65 has announced plans 
to sponsor dances after the weekend home 
basketball games. The dances were de-

the Junior Class at Lebanon Valley Col- 

At this meeting reports of first semester 
activities were also given. To date the 
class has sponsored a record hop, the 
powder puff football game, a hayride and 
a car wash. The movie that was sched- 
uled for November 23 was cancelled in 
respect for the late President. 

Plans for the Junior Prom were also 
discussed. A theme was accepted and a 
hootenanny program was approved for 
the Friday evening before the dance.

Telegrams Express 
Valley's Sympathy 

Following are the texts of the telegrams 
that were sent on Monday by Lebanon 
Valley College as a result of the Novem- 
ber 22 tragedy. 

The Honorable Lyndon B. Johnson 
President of the United States 
Washington, D. C. 

Dear President Johnson: 

In these crucial moments in the history 
of our nation, the faculty, administration, 
and students of Lebanon Valley College 
pledge to you their complete support as 
you assume the responsibilities of the 
Chief of State. During the special me- 
morial service for our late President this 
morning, we also offered prayers on your 
behalf and in the interest of the United 
States. We are confident that with God's 
help you will offer the leadership in both 
domestic and foreign affairs that shall 
keep this country in the front ranks of 
man's struggle for freedom. God bless 

Sincerely yours, 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, President 
Lebanon Valley College 
Annville, Pennsylvania 

Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy 
The White House 
Washington, D. C. 

Dear Mrs. Kennedy: 

The faculty, administration, and stu- 
dents of Lebanon Valley College extend 
to you and. your children their deepest 
sympathy in your hour of sorrow. Though 
in a far different way, your loss is our 
loss, too, for President Kennedy symbol- 
ized to the world the youth and vigor of 
the United States and the American 
dream of the freedom of all men under 
God. Our life is fuller because of Mr. 
Kennedy's dedicated service, because of 
his interest in and support of higher edu- 
cation, and because with your help, he 
enriched the cultural life of our nation 
through his support of the arts as a medi- 
um of conveying from heart to heart the 
deepest human concerns. Nevertheless, 
while the nation has lost a leader and 
mankind everywhere has lost a champion 
of human rights, you have lost a husband 
and your children a father. No one has 
more endearing ties than these. 

We pray that in the days of emptiness 
that lie ahead you may find healing in the 
Christian faith you profess and consola- 
tion in the ministry and good will of 
friends at home and abroad. You will 
want to know that prayers on your be- 
half were expressed during special me- 
morial services this morning in the College 

Sincerely yours, 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, President 
Lebanon Valley College 
Annville, Pennsylvania

Pa. Governor Speaks 
At Press Conference 

William W. Scranton, Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsyl- 
vania held a junior press conference for college newspaper reporters on 
November 20 in the Governor's Reception Room in the State Capitol. 
Representing Lebanon Valley College were Miss Judy Ruhl, editor of 
La Vie Collegienne, Miss Nancy Bintliff, associate editor of La Vie and 
Jack Gregory, news photographer. 

During the conference Governor Scran- 
ton was asked if he would accept the 
nomination for vice president next year if 
Barry Goldwater were nominated as presi- 
dent. Scranton replied that he would not 
consider running for any national office. 
According to the Governor, "a pure, 
honest, sincere draft does not come any- 

Questioned about the proposed Gold- 
water and Rockefeller meetings, Gover- 
nor Scranton explained that they were 
for the purpose of explaining the position 
of Pennsylvania and the position of him- 
self as governor to the two men. He feels 
that the Pennsylvania Republican Party is 
in need of unity and must therefore en- 
ter the convention as a non-committed 
delegation. He stated that any group that 
is committed or has pledges would do 
away with unity and at the present "we 
away with unity and at the present "it is 
very important that the party be united." 

In speaking of the defeat of the pro- 
posed revision of the Constitution of Penn- 
sylvania, Governor Scranton said he felt 
it was defeated for two reasons. First, 
and probably the main reason, many peo- 
ple feared the revision would mean a 
graduated state income tax. Secondly, he 
thought a large number of rural people 
believed that the new Constitution would 
mean a deterioration of home rule. Ac- 
cording to Scranton, "both are false." He 
pointed to the fact that there is no defi- 
nite statement in our present Constitution 
that excludes a graduated state income 
tax. In fact, he said, it could be inter- 
preted to read either way. By revising 
the Constitution we could ban this kind 
of tax. Also, he believes that a revision 
would strengthen home rule rather than 
subtract from it. "Actually, the vote 
was much closer than I thought it would 
be." Scranton feels that there are two 
possible results of the defeat. First, 
ammendments will be voted upon during 
the general session of legislature. Either 
they will go through or they will bog 
down which will further point to the need 
for a constitutional convention. 

Discussing the sales tax issue Scranton 
stated, "I don't favor it over the graduated 
income tax — nationally — but in Pennsyl- 
vania I do." He emphasized that he is 
not in favor of a duplication of tax ef- 
fort and stated that it is his belief that 
the income and inheritance taxes should 
be kept on a national level. The sales 
tax is a good source of income for the 
state governments, and it can be handled 
adequately by the states. 

One of Scranton's main platforms dur- 
ing his campaign was to bring new busi- 
ness into Pennsylvania. Questioned on 
the results of this idea after one year in 
office Scranton pointed out the fact that 
there is less unemployment in Pennsyl- 
vania today than previously, and the rate 

of decrease has exceeded the decrease on 
the national level. According to his figures, 
more new industry has moved into Penn- 
sylvania within the past year than has en- 
tered within the past 12 years, and the 
industry that is currently in Pennsylvania 
has expanded more in the past year than 
has expanded in the past 15 years. 

While Scranton's personal views are not 
entirely in agreement with those of the 
Supreme Court, nevertheless it is the law 
of the land and he believes it should be 

Further discussion included the topics 
of a woman for vice president, appropria- 
tions to state colleges, the college text 
book tax, the new liquor ruling, and grants 
to colleges and universities. 

SCA Makes Resolution 
On Constitution Change 

The following resolution to amend the 
Constitution of the Student Christian As- 
sociation of Lebanon Valley College will 
be voted upon at the December 18 meet- 
ing to be held in the Audio-Visual Aid 
Room of the Gossard Memorial Library 
at 9:15 p.m. 

The Constitution now reads: "The Stu- 
dent Christian Association of Lebanon 
Valley College, including those united by 
a common loyalty to Jesus Christ and 
those of various other creeds, feels its re- 
sponsibility to help meet the spiritual, in- 
tellectual, and social needs of the entire 
campus community. In this fellowship 
the members are encouraged to seek to 
understand the will of God through wor- 
ship, study, and action and to strive to ex- 
press this will in personal living and com- 
munity life." This purpose shall be 
amended to read "The Student Christian 
Association of Lebanon Valley College, 
including those united by a common 
commitment to their Savior Jesus Christ, 
feels its responsibility to help meet the 
spiritual, intellectual, and social needs of 
the entire campus community. In this 
fellowship the members are encouraged 
to seek to understand the will of God 
through worship, study, and action and to 
strive to express His will in personal living 
and community life." 

All students, as members of the SCA 
are urged to attend this meeting and vote 
for or against this amendment. The an- 
nual Christmas carolling will also take 
place during this meeting. 

On December 11 the SCA Fellowship 
meeting will present a religious drama, 
"Not As A King." Written by Skip 
Maurer and Bill Kreichbaum, the drama 
presents different reactions to the Christ- 
mas story. The play will be presented at 
7 p.m. in the Evangelical Congregational

Freshmen Announce 
Results Of Elections 

Tuesday, December 10, was election day for the Freshman Class. 
From among the many able candidates for the various offices, the fol- 
lowing five people were elected by their classmates: 

Damon Silvers, president of the Class of 1967. Damon is a pre- 
medical student from Trenton, New Jersey. At Trenton High School he 
served as president of the Forum Club, was a member of the Wheel Club, 
which is affiliated with the Rotary Club, and belonged to the Experi- 
menters Club, the high school chemistry organization. He was also photo- 
graphy editor of his year-book and president of his homeroom for three 
years. In the early part of his high school career, he was active in base- 
ball and soccer. 

Perhaps his biggest influence in his 
choosing Lebanon Valley was his parents, 
who were both graduates of the college. 
He has other reasons for his choice, how- 
ever. He wished to find a small liberal 
arts college with a good pre-medical 
course, and Lebanon Valley suited his 

Dan Chambers, vice-president. Known 
best for his position on the football team, 
Dan is a L. A. major from Pine Bush, 
New York. At Pine Bush Central High 
School, he was a member of the basket- 
ball, track, and football teams. For this 
participation, he was named most valu- 
able player in both his junior and senior 
years. In his senior year he was also 
elected to the All-County First Team in 
Ulster County, New York. His high 
school activities, however, were not limited 
to sports. He was also elected president 
of the high school student council and 
took part in the Youth-ln-Government 
program. He also participated in the 
1962 Boys' State. 

So far his activities in college have in- 
cluded only football and his new position 
as vice president of his class, but Dan 
Proves to be both a capable and willing 
worker. He is especially interested in 
abstract art. 

Explaining why he selected LVC as his 
c °llege, Dan stated that he always went 
{ o a small high school, and when he came 
to the college on Freshman Initiation Day 


spring, he decided that a small col- 

,e 8e, especially LVC, would fit in with his 
c haracter. 

Gretchen Long, secretary. A vivacious 
m usic major with a pixie haircut, Gret- 
chen was recognized as a leader of her 
c tass from the very beginning of her col- 
le 8e career. Many returning upperclass- 
m an can recall hearing the harmony of 
toe newly-initiated frosh as they sang folk 
s °ngs accompanied by Gretchen and her 
^'tar in front of Vickroy Hall. 

Coming to Lebanon Valley from As- 
yiry Park High School, she was a leader 
oere as well, especially in musical activi- 
es - For four years she belonged to the 
j'8h school band and the brass ensemble. 
... her senior year she served as band 



rar ian and was a member of the glee 

In her junior year she was selected 

a member of the Shore Conference 

Band. Her interests were not exclusively 
musical, however. She was a member of 
her yearbook staff, the National Honor 
Society, Kiwanis Honor Society, library 
staff, two language clubs and the Blue 
A's, the girl's athletic association. She 
also served as homeroom vice-president in 
her junior year.

World University Service 
Presents College Expert 

Lebanon Valley College is privileged to 
have as its chapel speaker on January 6, 
Dr. K. Bhaskara Rao, a representative of 
World University Service. WUS wel- 
comes Dr. Rao back to the United States 
where he will serve as Director of the 
Middle Atlantic region. Dr. Rao previ- 
ously served as regional director on the 
West Coast before returning to India. 
While in India the past two years he 
was coordinator of the WUS Asian Semi- 
nar. He also wrote two novels, Yachts, 
Hamburgers and a Hindu (about the 
Indian university life) published in 1963. 

Dr. Rao made a name for himself on 
the West Coast by his sense of humor, his 
curry dinners and his penetrating talks. 
One of the California college presidents 
wrote, "We desire to express our deep 
gratitude for the privilege of having Dr. 
Rao on our campus. He made a perma- 
nent impression upon the international 
attitudes of our students. He has given 
impetus and prestige to our total WUS 
program . . . more important is the fact 
that he set the stage for a positive ap- 
proach to future student participation in 
college convocations and student activity 
projects." A political science professor 
on one of the University of California 
campuses wrote, "Dr. Rao makes a WUS 
Faculty Advisor's job easier and pleas- 

Dr. Rao studied political science and 
English literature at the University of 
Mysore and the University of Nagpur 
where he was awarded a Master's degree 
in 1951. He was a lecturer in English 
literature at the University of Bangalore 
before he came to the State University of 
Iowa to study for his Ph.D., which he 
received in 1957. 

His studies and teaching in India were 
combined with extra-curricular activities. 
For four years he won first prize in the 
All-India Varsity Debate competitions. He 
was Secretary-General of the "United 
Nations Model Assembly" organized in 
India in 1952 — a distinction marking him 
as one of India's ablest young men.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 19, 1963 

Christmas Light 

Christmas — a world of color and brilliance — a world of ancient 
traditions. The decorations, the lights, the gifts, the beautiful paper and 
ribbons, the displays in store windows, the home decorations, the cards 
and the candles all combine to make Christmas a time of beauty and 
vitality in color. We may talk about a White Christmas and buy the 
silver and white trees, but we hasten to add the brilliantly colored balls 
and lights. Christmas would surely lose much of its wonder and eloquence 
if it were without the warmth of color and tradition, if it were actually 
and only a White Christmas. 

So, let us think of Christmas in terms of color. The star blazes in 
golden-white light above the simple and crude manger bed; the angles 
appear in radiant glory to the shepherds on the hillside; the wise men 
move slowly toward Bethlehem from the Eastern darkness with their gold, 
frankincense and myrrh. 

And, let us think of Christmas in terms of traditions. Candlelight 
glimmers softly as the joyful music proclaims the birth of the Savior; the 
sound of church bells floats on the crystal-clear December air; evergreen 
wreathes, mistletoe and holly, candy canes, flame-red poinsettias and 
the ever-present Christmas tree are everywhere proclaiming the joy and 
hope of the season. 

Christmas, then, is the golden radiance of the never-dimming star 
that signifies the birth of the Savior; it is the whiteness of His never dying 
love and his promise of peace for mankind; it is the evergreen symbol of 
immortality and rebirth through faith; Christmas is color and warmth, 
joy and tradition. 

Today, in a world of moon rockets, space ships, and jet propulsion, 
with outer space the horizon of tomorrow, we tend to forget these ancient 
and lovely traditions. Many of our customs and beliefs that have been 
taught and handed down from generation to generation are being lost in 
this world of science, industry and progress. On the surface, Christmas is 
dozens of traditions that are constantly changing — but the heart of it 
never changes. The ancient message remains: 

For unto you is born this day 

in the city of David, a Savior 

which is Christ the Lord. 
This goes right on through the centuries, strong and ageless. It means 
the beginning of Christianity, the second chance for the world, the hope 
for peace. Sweeter music was never heard than when the angels sang: 
On earth, peace, goodwill toward men. 
It was and still is God's promise of what some day shall come to 
pass. After nineteen centuries, Christmas still remains an object of 
wonder. Wonder is but the beginning of faith, and faith must be put 
into Christian living. Christ and Christmas are for all mankind. 

Therefore, as we return home to our friends and families let us 
also return home to Christ and His love. This year let us not "spend" 
Christmas — nor "observe" Christmas — but let us endeavor to "keep" 
Christmas, keep it as it was in all the loveliness, joy and warmth of its 
ancient traditions. Let us keep it in our hearts that we may be kept in 
its hope. (JKR) 

Christmas— Humbug 

Christmas time is here again — or is it? Many of the students at 
LVC find that they are having a bit of trouble catching the good old 
Christmas Spirit this year. Even the gayly decorated trees and the snow 
fail to create an atmosphere of the yuletide season which is so rapidly 
approaching. What causes this seeming apathy among the students? 
To most it is quite evident. With a multitude of tests, term papers, and 
themes to concentrate on in the few short weeks between Thanksgiving 
and Christmas, the frustrated learner scarcely has time to note the date 
on the calendar, let alone to prepare for the forthcoming holiday season. 
When studying necessarily occupies almost every minute of every day, 
the natural gaiety and spiritual rejuvenation associated with Christmas 
isn't able to penetrate. Instead the student is plunged into a frenzy of 
studying and worrying that seems like it will never end. 

In the midst of the pre-holiday confusion, the frustrated book wor- 
shipper might pause, but just for a second, to muse over several questions 
which naturally arise in his mind. For example, is it fair to the people 
who must take tests and get good grades on them to give an examination 
the day before Christmas vacation? Or, is it fair to administer a test the 
day after the Christmas Dinner-Dance, one of the biggest social events 
of the year? This latter appears especially questionable when it is con- 
sidered that the dance is a school-sponsored function. If the tests must 
be given on that particular day and no other time will do, why can't the 
Dinner-Dance be scheduled on a weekend, when the students would be 
more free to enjoy themselves, and when it would be possible for them to 
do it without having it interfere with their studying? Or, if the dance 
can not be scheduled for a weekend, why can't the professors plan their 
examinations around it? The calendar, we are told, is made out quite a 
while in advance of the time when the events will take place. Since it is 
necessary for the students to arrange their schedules to suit the calendar, 
it should also be relatively easy for the faculty to arrange their examina- 
tion schedules with discretion. 

The Christmas Spirit could easily return to Lebanon Valley College 
with a little aid from both students, and administrative and faculty 
members. (KAG) 

The staff of La Vie Collegienne 
wishes to express its s ncere sympathy 
to Mr. and Mrs. Clifford B. Alban 
and to the relatives and friends of 
Bradford Clifford Alban. 

Brad died in Harrisburg on Decem- 
ber 17, 1963. He was a twenty-one- 
year-old pre-medical student majoring 
in biology and a member of the senior 
class at Lebanon Valley College. 

Ancient Traditions 
Add Seasonal Zest 

The Lebanon Valley campus has taken 
on a new Holiday spirit. Lighted Christ- 
mas trees can be seen from almost any 
point on campus, and the dorms and the 
dining hall are in festive array. 

As you look at these decorations have 
you ever wondered who decorated the 
first tree? Who sang the first carol? 

One source ascribes the first Christmas 
tree to an 8th-century monk named Boni- 
face, who wished to replace sacrifices to 
Odin's sacred oak with the custom of 
adorning a fir tree in tribute to the Christ 

Another says that Martin Luther, in 
the 16th century, was the first to cut a 
small fir tree, bring it home, and dec- 
orate it for his children. Whatever its 
origin in time, the custom seems to have 
started in Germany. Prince Albert, Vic- 
toria's German consort, is credited with 
introducing it to England. 

The original Santa Claus seems to have 
been St. Nicholas of Myra, who was 
famous in his lifetime for his generosity. 
To three dowry-less daughters of a poor 
nobleman, St. Nicholas flipped three 
pieces of gold down the chimmey. By ac- 
cident one of the coins landed in a shoe 
by the mantelpiece. 

Martyred in 432 A.D., St. Nick" be- 
came the patron saint of children and of

and his red suit (a hand-me-down from 
the Norse God, Thor). 

Santa's rosy cheeks, white beard, and

The wassail bowl and the Christmas 
toast were both started in the same ges- 
ture by the daughter of an early Ger- 
manic chieftain, then on a campaign in 
Britain. Offering a garlanded bowl of 
wine to her father's princely host, she 
said "Wassheil," or "Here's to you." The 
prince responded gallantly and they were 
soon married. 

The word "toast" emerges from the 
fact that wassail bowls sometimes had 
pieces of toast, as well as fruit, floating 
around in the top. 

Mistletoe also has an ancient back- 
ground. The primitive Britons thought 
mistletoe had the power to heal disease, 
make poison impotent, protect against 
witchcraft, and bestow fertility. If a 
young couple sealed their troth with a 
mistletoe kiss, they could expect good 
luck for the rest of their lives. 

The word "carol" means "to dance in 
a ring." The person who popularized 
caroling was St. Francis of Assisi — the 
same saint who originated the creche as 
a sacred part of Christmas. In the 13th 
century, St. Francis' creche was made of 
real people and animals. When peasants 
traveled from far and wide to see it, St. 
Francis led them in "carols" — joyous

One of the most widespread and recent 
customs is that of sending Christmas 
cards. The first one designed for general 
circulation was made in England by a 16- 
year-old boy. It was not until a few 
years later, however, in 1846, that a 
Christmas card decoration caused such stir 
that people who had never heard of them 
began to adopt the custom, and make

La Vie Inquires 

Should "A" Students 
Take Final Exams? 

by Carol Mickey 

With the approach of final exams, many students are wondering 
whether they will be able to maintain their "A" or "B" averages, raise a 
borderline grade, or raise a failing or near-failing grade. 

In a recent meeting of Pi Gamma Mu a member of the administra- 
tion commented on exempting students with an "A" average from final 
exams. The administrator suggested that Pi Gamma Mu obtain student 
viewpoints concerning this question. La Vie Inquires joins Pi Gamma 
Mu, at its request, in this attempt. 

La Vie Inquires does not maintain that 
this is a concensus of opinions of all stu- 
dents, but that it is rather a random 
sampling of the opinions of some students. 

Therefore La Vie Inquires, "Do you 
think that students with an 'A' average 
should be exempt from final exams? 
Would this create an incentive for doing 
better work?" 

Sue Wolfe: "No, 
I don't think these 
students should be 
exempt from final 
exams. A final can 
often make or break 
a grade for another 
student; the same 
should be true of a 
student with an 'A' 
average. In regard 
to the incentive the 
exemption would bring, I think it would 
make little difference. The 'A' or 'B' 
student usually tries hard anyway." 

Carol WooIIey: "To exempt those stu- 
dents who have obtained an 'A' average 
would, I believe, provide an incentive for 
better achievement. This policy was car- 
ried out in our junior and senior high 
schools, and it seemed to get the students 
to work more conscientiously during the 
semester rather than to depend on a final 
exam grade to help raise his semester 
grade. Also, if a student was not re- 
quired to take finals in all his courses, 
he would then be able to concentrate 
more in those subjects that cause him 
more difficulty. Just as one has a feel- 
ing of pride and satisfaction in being on 
the Dean's List, one has a feeling of re- 
lief from tension and pressure by being 
exempt from exams." 

Dick Barshinger: "No, I do not think 
that anyone should be exempt. There are 
two reasons for this opinion. First, the 
review and cramming for finals, for any 
student, meet a much needed total sum- 
marization where general concepts fall 
into proper perspective and specific de- 
tails are totally clarified in the mind. Se- 
cond, no matter how motivated the 'A' 
student is, he is still human and very lazy, 
so that the threat of a final may become 
his added external motivation to that 
much needed total review. As a means 
for creating an incentive for better work, 
the exemption from finals might do this 
initially, but after all novelty has worn 
off, I doubt whether a final or the lack 
of one would change the student's view 
of life, for study habits merely reflect a 
portion of the total outlook of the in- 
dividual. However, since I have not the 
authority to generalize and since each 

person's view is his secret, so each person 
must know how he alone would react to 
such an innovation." 

Judy Dugan: "Students who have an 
'A' average in a course should be able to 
achieve a good mark on the final exam, 
or they do not deserve the 'A' at all. Final 
exams are imperative as reviews and final 
learning devices for most students, and 
to eliminate them would eliminate part 
of the total course. I do not think it would 
serve as motivation because the thought 
of final exams is not an immediate reality 
during the struggle through the semester. 
Students would study for intermittent 
hourlys just as they always have!" 

Dennis Martin: "Yes, I do think that 
'A' students should be required to take 
final exams. The basic idea behind final 
exams is that they provide the student 
with a good review of the material he 
has covered during the semester. Ideally, 
of course, the 4 A' student should have the 
initiative to review on his own. However, 
the final exams give him, as well as other 
students, the opportunity to put his cumu- 
lative knowledge to work. 

"Ideally, at least, one should have 
enough desire to learn the material be- 
cause he wants to learn it, and he doesn't 
need the incentive that if he obtains an 
'A' he won't be required to take a final 
exam. The final exam should be an in- 
centive in itself, so that the student may 
strive to become an 'A* student or so 
that the 'A* student can prove that his 
grade is warranted." 

Pete Padley: "I feel that no one should 
be exempt from final exams. It is quite 
possible that a student would cram for 
each hourly and obtain his 'A', and for- 
get the subject matter within a few weeks. 
I feel that a thorough review of the sub- 
ject matter is an important aspect in any 
course. This review can be administered 
best in studying for a final exam.

Two LV forfeits cost them the season

Tom Kent began the Valley scoring 
with an 8-4 decision in the 123 pound 
class and was followed by a pin by Sam 
Willman at 130 to give the Valley an 8-0 
lead. Although Hawk pinned his man 
at 137 points went to PMC due to his 
weight problem. Dave Mahler continued 
his dominance in the 147 division with a 
pin at 1:55 for a 13-5 lead. 

Here the Valley scoring stopped as 
Vinnie Caprio was pinned, Joe Rutter 
and Ron Beistline lost decisions and the 
Valley forfeited the last match. 

Although the team did not win the 
match, Coach Petrofes is satisfied with 
his boys' performances. He says, 'They 
are the finest I've ever worked with — the 
most promising. Although there are only

LVC Scores Third Win 
From Moravian Cagers 

A strong second half gave the Lebanon 
Valley cage team its third consecutive 
win with a 77-68 count over Moravian. 

After jumping off to a quick 8-0 lead 
the Valley was stymied by the Grey- 
hound zone and Moravian chipped away 
until it had built up a 21-10 lead. 

With only 2:16 remaining in the half 
the Valley had pulled up to a 24-31 de- 
ficit. At this point Chuck Ebersole 
poured in a quick goal followed by goals 
by John Vaszily and Bill Koch to make 
the count 30-31. Moravian scored an- 
other goal but Vaszily hit again for a 
32-33 score, and Chuck Ebersole put the 
Valley back in the lead at 34-33. A 
Moravian foul shot tied the score at 
34-34 at the half. 

The score see-sawed for fifteen minutes 
of the second half, with seven ties occur- 
ring during that time. With 5:50 re- 
maining, LVC jumped out ahead on a 
flurry of goals and took a 69-63 lead 
with two minutes left in the game. At this 
point the Valley went into a control-type 
ball game until the final horn. 

Chuck Ebersole lead the Dutchmen in 
their scoring attack with 22 markers on 
eleven field goals. He was followed by 
Ken Hook with 17; Dale Haines, 13; Bill 
Koch, 12; and John Vaszily, 10. Denny 
Robison lead the Greyhound attack with 
22 points on 8 field goals and 6 foul shots. 

The Valley Jay Vees went down to 
Moravian 92-88; but, Don Stanton and 
Steve Burkey both chipped in with 30 
point performances — Stanton scoring 32 
and Burkey 30.

come engaged in an endless round of ac- 
tivities. These include band, chorus, 
brass ensemble, chapel choir, French club, 
and Honors English which she considers 
her favorite extra-curricular activity. 

She chose Lebanon Valley because of 
its excellent rating in music and because 
it offers a liberal education. She also 
likes the small-school atmosphere that 
Valley has. 

Brad Rentzel, treasurer. Although he 
has only been here at LVC for a few 
months, Brad has a record of activities 
that many upper-classmen would find 
hard to rival. A pre-medical student, he 
plays the trombone in the college band, 
is a member of the chorus, and is an 
energetic basketball player. 

At Northeastern High School in Man- 
chester, Pa., Brad served as president of 
his class for three years, as Honor So- 
ciety President, and as the Sports Editor 
for the yearbook. In the field of sports, 
he played volleyball and basketball as 
well as being a member of the school's 
varsity soccer team. Finally, in music, 
he was a member of the high school cho- 
rus and band. To top off this well-rounded 
group of interests, he served as president 
of his youth fellowship at Otterbein 
E. U. B. in Manchester. 

As indicated by his activities, his in- 
terests are mainly in the areas of music 
and sports. However, he chose this col- 
lege for another reason. His interest in 
the church prompted him to select a 
church-related college with a small and 
friendly atmosphere. LVC filled these re- 
quirements for him.

In high school he was active in sports, 
especially in cross country, basketball and 
baseball, which he says is his favorite 
sport. He was also a member of the Na- 
tional Honor Society and the Key Club. 

At LVC he belongs to the German 
Club and expects to go out for baseball in 
the spring. The thing he likes best about 
the college is the friendly attitude of 
everyone, "profs, included."

Dutch Flier 

by Chip Burkhardt 

The supposedly under-sized and under-manned LVC basket- 
ball squad has been doing all right for itself recently. After an ex- 
pected but not humiliating loss to Elizabethtown in the season opener, 
the Valley has stormed back to win three in a row, having beaten Ly- 
coming, Western Maryland, and, most recently, Moravian. 

From what could be seen by this reporter on Saturday night, the 
Dutchmen will be at a disadvantage in depth and size all year with Bill 
Koch being the team's tallest man at 6'3" and the teams leading re- 
bounder. The depth problem is brought out by the fact that only six 
players have performed at any one time this season although Terry Herr 
and Terry Lenker have been slowed by injuries. The substitutes who 
have been used, Herr and Joe Mowrer, have filled in well especially when 
Terry substituted for Dale Hains at Western Maryland. 

The Valley strength seems to be their speed and shooting eye. In 
all games to this point the scoring has been well distributed among the 
five starters, and at present all maintain scoring averages in double figures. 
Bill Koch leads the team in both rebounding and scoring, having had a 
38 point night against Western Maryland. This is the highest one game 
total since Howie Landa scored 45 against West Chester in the 1954-55 

Koch's 19 point a game average is followed by Ebersole with a 17.7 
average, sophomore John Vaszily and Ken Hook with 14.2 and 12.5 
averages, and Dale Hains with a 12.0.

Koch 27 22 76 19.0 

Ebersole 32 7 71 17.7 

Vaszily 25 7 57 14.2 

Hook 17 16 50 12.5 

Hains 20 8 48 12.0 

Football still lingers a bit as the recognitions roll in. Bill Hohen- 
shelt was third man in the voting count for the all ECAC team as Bill 
won a guard post for his fine work this year. Wes MacMillan was 
named to the All-State third team backfield as a halfback and received 
honorable mention rating in the Little All-American polling this year. 
Congratulations are in order for both of these standouts.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 19, 1963 

The College Chorus practices on Monday night for their 10th Annual Com* 
munity Christmas Service which was presented on December 17 in Engle Hall. The 
Chorus was directed by Pierce Getz. 

LV Chorus Presents 
Christmas Musicale 

The 10th Annual Community Christmas Service was presented by 
the Department of Music on Tuesday evening, December 17, in Engle 
Hall. The program, held in conjunction with the churches of Annville, 
was presided over by the Rev. Bruce C. Souders and dedicated to Brad- 
ford C. Alban. 

Professor Pierce Getz directed the 125 voice College Chorus in a 
series of Christmas anthems and traditional carols interspersed with pas- 
sages of Scripture proclaiming the Christmas Story. The choir included 
students from all areas of the college, as well as faculty members, 

Accompanying the choir was Nancy 
Dice, organist, a junior from Lebanon. 
An instrumental trio composed of Ro- 
berta Johns, and Barbara Shupp, flutists; 
and Kermit Sweigart, percussionist, ac- 
companied the chorus as it sang "Bring 
Your Pipes and Bring Your Drum," an 
Austrian carol and "Noel," an English 

Other anthems heard included "Mary 
Had a Baby," "I Sing of a Maiden," "The 
First to Hear," and several selections 
from Handel's "Messiah." 

Community participants in the program 
included The Rev. Sterling D. Thompson, 
pastor of the Zion Evangelical Congrega- 
tional Church; The Rev. Larry L. Leh- 
man, pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran 
Church, and the Rev. Mark J. Hostetter, 
pastor of the Evangelical United Brethren 
Church. Ushers were from each of the 
churches in Annville. 

Preceding the service, the Lebanon 
Valley College Brass Ensemble, under the 
direction of Dr. James M. Thurmond, 
presented carols on the campus lawn. 

Design Cover For 
Next REW Booklet 

The Religious Emphasis Week execu- 
tive committee needs an expressive cover 
design for the REW booklet. Try a few 
sketches in between study hours over 
Christmas vacation and hand in your 
designs to Rick Carlson, Kreider Hall, or 
Loretta Schlegel, Vickroy Hall, by Janu- 
ary 6. 

The design should be done on 10 inch 
by 6V2 inch paper and include the fol- 
lowing: Honest to God, Religious Em- 
phasis Week, March 2-5, 1964. The 
drawing should be simple and in black 
and white using more white area than 
black, shading done only with lines. 

The design will be selected on the basis 
of: (1) relevance to topic (2) originality 
and stimulation of thought and (3) com- 
position — consider effectiveness when 
printed — simplicity is important.

Know Other Lands 
"Kenya's Uhuru" 

by Mike M. Kamuyu 

At midnight on December 11, 1963, 
Kenya became independent. The shout 
from the 8 % million Kenyan throats 
stirred the whole of the huge, timeless 
continent of Africa. For colorful, con- 
troversial Kenya — although coming rela- 
tively late in the list of independent Afri- 
can states — has never lacked prominent 
leaders whose voices have achieved much 
in the emancipation of Africa. 

Kenya is an exciting country! It is 
physically exciting, with its snow-clad 17,- 
000 foot equatorial mountain; its great 
herds of wild animals ranging over wide 
plains and through thick forests; and its 
broad streets of the modern cities. Kenya, 
due to altitude, has a cool and invigorat- 
ing climate except on the coast and im- 
mediate interior. 

But Kenya's future is the most exciting 
of all. Its leaders have plunged into the 
heady task, set by Prime Minister Jomo 
Kenyatta, of removing the blights of ig- 
norance, poverty and disease. It has an 
immense agricultural potential and its 
mixed African, Asian, Arab, and Euro- 
pean population has the resource and 
know-how to realize this potential. The 
great majority of these peoples of all 
races have thrown in their lot with the 
new African government. 

It is this exciting future which loomed 
large in the minds of Kenya's people dur- 
ing the Independence celebration days — 
December 12, 13, and 14. It inspired the 
state occasions, the balls, the fireworks, 
and most of all, the raising of Kenya's 
new national flag at midnight, December 
11. More than a quarter-of-a-million 
people watched this impressive ceremony 
held at the 200-acre Independence Arena, 
near Nairobi. 

Today the inspiring new slogan coined 
by the Prime Minister — the Swahili word 
"Harambee," which means "Pull together," 
is in every Kenyan's mind. The Prime 
Minister has also said many times that a 
spirit of national familyhood must be 
created if Kenya is to prosper; people of 
all communities must come together and 
work for a better future of all the people. 

Kenya lies astride the Equator on the 
eastern seaboard of Africa, and is about 
the same size as Texas, with an area of 
225,000 square miles. The country is 
divided into seven regions — Central, West- 
ern, Eastern, North Eastern, the spectacu- 
lar Rift Valley and the coast, with Nai- 
roibi, the capital, as an extra-regional area. 
The Indian Ocean coastline stretches from 
Somalia in the north to Tanganyika in the 

Almost two-thirds of the country is 
semi-arid. From the hot, humid coastal 
belt the land rises gradually inland through 
dry bush country to the Savannah grass- 
lands and the Highlands where rainfall is 

Swahili, English, Hundustani, Arabic, 
and various vernaculars are the languages 
spoken in Kenya. Swahili is the com- 
mon language in the East Africa states and 
is also known by some people in Central 
Africa and Congo. 

Education in Kenya is fully integrated 
at all levels from university down to pri- 
mary schools. Education is not compul- 
sory, but Kenya has one of the highest 
rates of primary education in Africa. 

Tourism attracts more than 50,000 visi- 
tors from overseas every year. These peo- 
ple come to see the country's wildlife 
and scenery. Chief attractions are the 
seven national parks; the greatest one 
covers more than 8,000 square miles be- 
tween Nairobi and Mombasa. 

Mrs. Lewin joins math department at LVC 

With ZJke faculty, 

by Sharon Stetler 

Mrs. Mary Lewin, a new professor in the mathematics department 
at Lebanon Valley College this year, has taken a giant step in her teach- 
ing career. During her previous years of teaching she was concerned 
only with junior high and high school students. Much as she enjoyed 
this level of mathematics, she began to feel less satisfied with the younger 
children. She expressed the feeling that when a teacher becomes sincerely 
interested in her teaching and in studying, she readily becomes less 
satisfied with the elementary aspects of her subject area. 

It is, however, usually profitable to be- 

Company Submits Study 
Of Campus Development 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of 
the college, announces that the board of 
trustees has accepted the report research- 
ed and compiled by the Shay Associates 
and has discharged that company's com- 
mittee from further study. The report 
has not been approved and adopted in its 
entirety as yet, but it will serve as the 
basic plan for physical development on 
which the college will proceed for the 
next ten years. 

Plans have been made for the con- 
struction of a new men's dormitory, a 
chapel-auditorium, a fine arts building, 
and a college center — but not necessarily 
in that order. Arrangements are being 
made to interview architectural engineers 
before the end of this calendar year. The 
board of trustees will meet in the spring 
to determine whether final approval of 
these plans for future construction on this 
campus will be given.

While studying at the State University

Dr. Rao has traveled extensively in 
Asia and the United States and possesses 
an understanding of university life in 
many countries. He is highly qualified 
to interpret the work of World University 
Service to student and faculty audiences. 

The speaker for the January 13 chapel 
service is the Rev. G. Paul Musselman. 
Rev. Musselman is assistant minister of 
Saint Paul's Episcopal Church, Westfield, 
the largest Episcopal parish in New 
Jersey. Prior to this position he was 
executive director of the Central Depart- 
ment of Evangelism of the National 
Council of Churches, executive secretary 
of the Division of Urban-Industrial 
Church Work of the National Council of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church, and 
secretary of the Episcopal Church's Joint 
Commission to Survey Missionary Prob- 
lems in the Industrial Areas. While serv- 
ing on the National Council of the Epis- 
copal Church he represented the Epis- 
copal interests in evangelism with the 
World Council of Churches and the 
National Council of Churches. 

Rev. Musselman entered the Episcopal 
ministry as a graduate of Delancey Di- 
vinity School in Buffalo, New York. 

In the fall of 1960, Seabury Press pub- 
lished his book, The Church on the Ur- 
ban Frontier, which deals with the dilem- 
mas of church life in the cities of America 
today. The Saturday Evening Post pub- 
lished an article by him entitled, "Church- 
es Are Failing the Cities," in its series 
called "Speaking Out." 

gin teaching along lower levels in order 
to perfect one's method of presentation 
and to establish one's preference as far 
as age-level is concerned. The experi- 
ence gained in teaching in the high school 
is often invaluable. In Mrs. Lewin's case 
she is teaching calculus now only because 
she had the opportunity to teach it in her 
last high school position. 

When asked why she decided to switch 
to college-level teaching Mrs. Lewin gave 
the above reasons, along with several 
others. She feels that college students 
possess a much greater desire to learn 
than can be found in younger pupils. 
Teacher motivation needs to be much less, 
allowing more time for teacher prepara- 
tion and presentation. 

The discipline problems in the college 
classroom are nothing as compared to 
those in junior and senior high school. 
The former situation is a mature one in 
which complete concentration may be 
placed on mathematics. 

One of the biggest advantages of col- 
lege teaching for Mrs. Lewin has been 
the large amounts of time provided in the 
course of the day during which she is able 
to complete classroom preparations. Be- 
tween classes she has the opportunity to 
make up and type tests, correct papers, 
and prepare for future classes. There is 
not the time pressure which must con- 
stantly be battled by most high school 

This allows the teacher more time for 
study and most important, according to 
Mrs. Lewin, personal growth. Only if 
a person grows herself can she be a suc- 
cessful teacher. 

Mrs. Lewin finds the cooperation with- 
in the department to be much stronger 
than she experienced in the high schools. 
There is, instead of rivalry, a close com- 
radeship among the member teachers. 
Without pressure from the department, 
she has been given the opportunity to 
teach what best suits her. 

Mrs. Lewin chose Lebanon Valley over 
other colleges for several simple reasons. 
The location is close to her home, so 
that she may teach without disrupting her 
family. She likes the classroom informality 
possible in a small college as evidenced 
in her policy of calling each student by 
his or her first name. 

At this point in her first year of col- 
lege teaching Mrs. Lewin feels that she 
knows all of her students pretty well. She 
finds them a "sincere, friendly group, 
lacking the ultra-sophistication of many 
student bodies." 

She is very happy with her position 
here at Lebanon Valley. For her, it is 
much more pleasant than high school

I wish to thank all friends of 
LVC for joining me on Decem- 
ber 11 and 12 to mark and cele- 
brate Kenya's Uhuru. I am es- 
pecially indebted to the friends 
who volunteered and sans the 
Kenya National Anthem. I can- 
not also forget the people who 
were willing to help in the sing- 
ing of the Anthem but just could 
not make it. Thanks and all my 
appreciation go to the ones who 
had prepared small Kenya flags 
and tagged them to their blouses 
or coats.
